Product Description

FLORIDA FIELD & O'DOME

911278

BEN HILL GRIFFIN STADIUM: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field (better known as The Swamp) is the American football stadium for the University of Florida’s football team, nicknamed the Gators. The stadium and the university are located in Gainesville, Florida. Regularly holding just over 90,000 fans per game, it is the eleventh largest stadium in college football by capacity.

STEPHEN C. O'CONNELL CENTER: The Stephen C. O'Connell Center, also known as the O'Dome, is a 12,000-seat multi-purpose arena located on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. The facility is named for Stephen C. O'Connell, the sixth president of the University of Florida from 1967 to 1973. The facility is located between the west side of football's Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and the east side of baseball's McKethan Stadium. The arena opened in 1980, but problems with the inflatable, Teflon-coated fabric roof required replacement with a permanent, hard shell dome on top of the structure in 1998. In 2006, the university undertook an overhaul of the four scoreboards located above the entrances to Gates 1-4. Instead of displaying information and advertisements, the scoreboards are now used for live instant replays for events inside the arena. The arena, which is the fourth on-campus home of the Gators, replaced the old Florida Gymnasium, nicknamed "Alligator Alley", which was the home of the Gators for the previous 31 seasons and is still located to the east of the football stadium.
