Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (aka "The Swamp") is the home of the University of Florida Football team.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium was built in 1930 and was originally named "Florida Field". When it opened, the seating capacity was roughly 22,000 with stands on the east and west side of the field. Many renovations have taken place since the opening of the stadium, with the last major seating addition completed in 2003 wth an expansion of club seats and luxury box seats. All of the renovations have resulted in an official capacity of 90,714, making Ben Hill Griffin Stadium the 10th largest college football stadium in the country.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is primarily used by the University of Florida football team, but will also host games played by Team Florida of the All-American Football League starting in the spring of 2008. The stadium is also annually used for the homecoming pep rally, known as "Gator Growl", and has hosted concerts in the past. The stadium is no longer used for concerts in an effort to keep the playing surface in good condition.
