Project Description:

Orlando’s Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium opened in 1936. The Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium has played host to the Capital One Bowl, Champs Sports Bowl, neutral-site college football games, the UFL’s Florida Tuskers and Florida high school football state championships. In the past, the stadium has hosted the Tangerine Bowl, several professional football teams, NFL preseason games, World Cup and Olympic soccer matches and Wrestlemania. In 2010 the stadium received 10 million dollars in upgrades: a mini-renovation incorporating numerous facility improvements designed to boost the fan experience. The upgrades included: 1 million dollars in artificial turf, four pairs of new restrooms, four new concession areas, new lighting on concourses and field, new LED ribbon boards and a new box office.

The most noticeable of the new features were the eye-catching, colorful, mural style banners that displayed photo collages of sporting events at the stadium. Mounted on the superstructure under the bowls; the murals provided visual interest to a previously under utilized portion of the stadium.
