Initially projected to have a cost of $40 to $45 million, the most recent cost estimations run as high as $55 million.[2] Most of the seats are of the metal bleacher variety, causing some to criticize its spartan looks and no-frills construction in the era of nine-figure sporting venues. It has been designed for a planned expansion to 65,000 seats. The stadium was originally built without water fountains as the building code used when the stadium was approved did not require water fountains.[3] However, during the opening game, they ran out of water at half time, and 18 people were hospitalized for heat exhaustion during the game. In order to correct the issue, UCF provided a free bottle of water to everyone at the next game, and immediately began work to install at least fifty water fountains throughout the stadium, in order to comply with the latest building code requirement.[4]


On May 9, 2006, it was announced that the 2007 Texas Longhorns would be the first opponent for the 2007 UCF Knights in the new stadium. The game, which was the first of three scheduled meetings between the schools,[5] was held September 15, 2007, and televised nationally on ESPN2 at 3:30 pm EDT (1930 UTC). A sellout crowd of 45,622 [1] [6] saw the Knights put a scare into the highly-ranked Longhorns before falling 35-32.[7] is the 129th day of the year (130th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
