Renderings for the new University of Southern Florida stadium were unveiled this week.

“Since we first announced plans to build an on-campus stadium at the University of South Florida, it has become the topic I hear about most often from our passionate supporters. There is a genuine excitement within our community,” USF President Rhea Law said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to offer the first images of the stadium that will activate our campus in ways we never have before and will make a positive impact on our university for generations to come.”USF also released new details about the stadium, including:

  • An east-west build to help maximize shade for daytime events.
  • A dedicated section for students in the west end of the stadium that includes a design unique to USF featuring Bull horns and amenities that will cater to the student experience.
  • An open concourse around a majority of the stadium that provides views of the field, even as fans are walking to concession or restroom areas.
  • A large tailgating space on the north side of the stadium.
  • A variety of premium seating options, including suites, loge boxes and club areas.

The university and the Florida board of governors approved a 20-year- $200 million loan and $25 million was donated for the project from Tampa General Hospital. As a result, the site will be named “Tampa General Hospital center for athletic excellence.”
