The Venue

Camping World Stadium

citrus3In 2014, Camping World Stadium was rebuilt into a state-of-the-art venue capable of hosting world-class events, including the inaugural AutoNation Cure Bowl game. About 90% of the stadium was torn down and replaced, including portions that have stood since its original construction in 1937. Only the upper decks, which were added in 1990 and remain viable as part of a modern facility, remained.

The new Camping World Stadium offers an enhanced fan experience at every level, with wider, chair-back seating, new concessions areas and restrooms, and new club and premium spaces throughout the building.

In addition to being the temporary home to Orlando’s new professional soccer team, the Orlando City Lions, the Camping World Stadium hosts signature annual events including the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl, Russell Athletic Bowl, Florida Blue Florida Classic and Monster Jam. The AutoNation Cure Bowl is proud to be the newest addition to this prestigious list. In addition, the new venue will allow Orlando to pursue more high-profile sports tourism events such as neutral-site college football games, NFL preseason games, international soccer matches, big-name concerts and more.
