ABOUT CAMPING WORLD S TADIUM
In 2016, Camping World became the new title sponsor of Orlando’s football stadium and Florida
Citrus Sports’ kicko game series, then became the sponsor of the Camping World Bowl in
2017. When the naming rights were announced, the landmark formerly known as the Citrus
Bowl became known as Camping World Stadium thanks to an exclusive, long-term agreement.
Originally constructed using a Works Progress Administration grant approved in 1940,
Camping World Stadium was rebuilt into a state-of-the-art venue in 2014, capable of hosting
world-class events. About 90 percent of the stadium was demolished and replaced in less
than 10 months, including portions that have stood since the stadium gates fi rst opened.
Only the upper decks, which were added in 1990 and remain viable as part of a modern
The new Camping World Stadium o ers 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 its fi rst year after the renovation, the stadium hosted its traditional calendar of events,
including the Vrbo Citrus Bowl, the Camping World Bowl, the Florida Blue Florida Classic
and Monster Jam. It also previously served as the home venue for Orlando City SC, which
memorably kicked o its inaugural MLS season in front of a sellout crowd in 2015.
Other soccer events include international friendlies between Mexico and Costa Rica, the
fi nal stop of the United States Women’s National Team’s “Victory Tour” against Brazil in 2015,
three Copa América matchups in 2016, Orlando’s fi rst International Champions Cup match
between Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and a World Cup qualifying
match between the U.S. Men’s National Team and Panama.
Back on the gridiron, Camping World Stadium hosted its fi rst NFL Pro Bowl in 2017 and is also
the former home of the FHSAA state football championships and a third bowl game — the
Cure Bowl — in early December. The Camping World Kicko featured a pair of then-Top-10
teams in Florida State and Ole Miss in 2016, followed by Louisville and defending CFP national
champion Alabama in 2018, and a highly anticipated game between in-state rivals Florida and
Miami in 2019.
Outside the sports world, the stadium has been the scene of many memorable entertainment
events, as well, including the Rolling Stones’ only Florida stop on their 2015 Zip Code
tour — a return 34 years in the making after a 1981 appearance at the old Citrus Bowl —
WrestleMania 33 in April 2017 and bigtime concerts that had Metallica, Jimmy Bu ett, the
Eagles, Jay-Z and Beyonce gracing the Camping World Stadium stage in recent years.
