  • I had gone to the "rally in the swamp" in this stadium. Popularly called as the swamp, the stadium derives its name from the swamp which was present in its place before construction began. It has a seating capacity of 90 thousand spectators. Great stadium to watch UF football match!
  • One of the best football stadiums in the country. It's open everyday until 10 PM and there is always lots of people running up the stairs and spirals. A must see if you are in Gainesville.
  • UF football stadium... us reptiles like to get rowdy on gamedays, but other than that the stadium is relatively quiet! Since it is open to students during daylight you'll usually find someone studying there, and even more popular is running the stadium stands at night
  • The most famous stadium in Gainesville. It's the heart of UF. The stadium comes to life at every football game and the atmosphere is amazing. You can't not visit here at least once if you a resident at Gainesville. The stadium looks awesome during sunset and cloudy evenings.
  • This stadium is the 2nd loudest college football stadium and is the 11th largest college football stadium. The atmosphere for this stadium is friendly, so you CAN bring children to a game, (NOT THE RIVALRY GAMES) the stadium supports 88,548 overall, but exceeds 91,000 each game day. The stadium also includes full-concrete construction, which means it is durable and sturdy and is also checked for Water Damage, Trash, and other kinds of things that make the stadium look, and feel messy. The stadium has ALOT of food, I mean LOTS! So easy to get to, and get back to the friendly atmosphere, and fun game to watch our favorite team! Before each game, the staff reminds us on both of the Jumbotrons how to escape safely through each individual tunnel that leads to the field. Overall 10/10! And it also has a friendly neighborhood surrounding the stadium. I had one guy high-five me and he said "What a day to be a gator, great game!"
