In 2014, Orlando's Citrus Bowl will be rebuilt into a state-of-the-art venue capable of hosting world-class events. About 90% of the stadium will be 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, will remain.
The new Citrus Bowl will offer 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.
When the stadium reopens in fall 2014, it will continue to host signature events including the Capital One Bowl, Russell Athletic Bowl, Florida Blue Florida Classic and Monster Jam. 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.
