To be Florida’s preeminent athletic program representing UCF and our community with distinction on the national stage as “Orlando’s Hometown Team.”

That’s our vision for UCF Athletics. I believe — and I know you believe — we can be a Top 25 intercollegiate athletics program. But it takes more than belief. It takes resources.

Together, every UCF fan can help us achieve these goals. We’re rolling out
The Rise and Conquer Initiative that will allow us to build new facilities, enhance our existing facilities and continue upgrading the programming that allows our young men and women who proudly wear the Black and Gold to have a championship experience in competition, in the classroom and in the community.

With your support, we can create the positive impact that will provide an even brighter future for UCF Athletics and our student-athletes.

Charge On!

WE'RE ON THE VERGE OF SOMETHING BIG

BIG THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT UCF. Scott Frost’s first season as head coach has been a remarkable turnaround for Knights Football. New talent has joined the team. New leaders are emerging. And a new momentum is rising from the field, electrifying the fans and reaching out into the Orlando community to launch an exciting new mission for UCF Athletics.

THE PLAN

TO REACH THE NEXT LEVEL, UCF ATHLETICS AIMS TO:

  • Become a perennial Top 25 college athletics program
  • Empower our student-athletes to earn a degree and attain exceptional personal and professional lives
  • Support UCF in achieving its goals through impactful, positive exposure
  • Energize all of Knight Nation, including alumni, students and the entire Orlando community

In our effort to attract, retain and develop championship-caliber student- athletes and coaches, it is essential for UCF to enhance funding for athletic scholarships and grow our operating budget through ticket sales, annual giving and corporate revenue. An important part of this growth will be the introduction of new premium seating options for the 2017 Knights Football season.

THE FACILITIES

World-class facilities have never been more important to attract recruits and win championships. We are seeking more than $25 million in charitable gift commitments from alumni and friends to construct and renovate facilities where our student-athletes live, study, train and compete.

THE ENHANCEMENTS

OUR MOMENTUM IS STRONG. The energy created by the opening of our on-campus football stadium in 2007 has fueled the continuing advancement of our UCF Athletics facilities. And in the near future, exciting enhancement projects will create cutting-edge facilities designed to push our programs to new levels of excellence.

NEW STADIUM CLUB

A new experience is coming to the west side of the stadium in 2017.

In sections 108–112 and 209–211, 3,500 seats will be converted from bench-back seating to chair-back seating with armrests and cup holders.

A new outdoor club lounge on the west lower concourse will feature private entrances (Gates 2 and 19), private restrooms, enhanced food and beverage service (including beer and wine) available for purchase at multiple bars. The space will also feature tables, drink rails, large fans and numerous TV monitors.

EXPANDED CARL BLACK & GOLD CABANA

One of the most popular experiences at the stadium will be getting larger and more affordable.

In sections 127-131, 2,000 benchback seats will be converted to chairback seats to match the upper bowl Cabana seats with armrests and cup holders.

A new concourse-level club lounge on the ground floor will feature private restrooms, large fans, TV monitors and enhanced food and beverage service (including beer and wine) available for purchase at multiple bars.

FIELD CABANAS

For the 2017 season, the Home of the Knights will introduce field cabanas — a first in college football — located at each end of the field.

Shaded seating for 12 will include a TV monitor, resort-style furnishings and a cooler filled with your favorite beverages (including beer and wine) available for purchase.

Fans will enjoy exclusive access to nearby air-conditioned lounges with enhanced food and beverage service (including beer and wine) available for purchase, and TV monitors.

Note: South End zone field cabanas are sold out. North End zone still available.

NEW STUDENT SECTIONS

The Knightmare is the heartbeat of the stadium. For 2017, students will take over the lower sections of both end zones to enhance the atmosphere. With the 12,000-strong Knightmare even closer to the field, the Knights will enjoy a greater home-field advantage as our opponents are forced to drive into a loud and rowdy student section going either direction.

As the cost of scholarships has continued to rise,
so too have all student- athlete expenditures such as equipment, nutrition, development, and strength and conditioning.

UCF Athletics student- athlete expenditures have increased 60 percent since 2007 while the average UCF ticket price/donation has only increased by 6 percent.

SEAT DEMAND

The darker the color, the more demand there is for seats in each of these sections. The darkest of these sections have been sold at or near capacity for years. The lighter shaded sections are where the demand is lower.

TICKET PRICE ADJUSTMENTS

The average price per game difference from 2016 to 2017, reflecting demand and our goal to fill the stadium by lowering prices in sections with lower demand.

Note: Price adjustments based on the UCF average of three season tickets per account. Prices based on per game average.

FUTURE OPPONENTS

“Moving forward, our home football scheduling philosophy will center around playing seven home games whenever possible. We will make it a priority to play a nonconference Power 6 home game each season. Our goal is to create compelling and interesting home schedules for our fans, while also giving them as many opportunities as possible to join us on campus and cheer on the Knights.”

2017 SEASON TICKET PRICING

NEW PER-SEAT DONATION MODEL: Previously, UCF was one of only a few schools in the Power 6 that did not participate in a “per-seat” priority seating program in order to raise annual scholarship funds. In 2017, UCF Football will have an annual per-seat minimum gift requirement that varies based upon section or location.

THE EXPERIENCE

GAME DAY MEANS MORE THAN JUST THE GAME. It’s a time for friends and families to come together to celebrate a common bond — our Knighthood. Whether you’re sharing food and laughter at the tailgate, stepping in time with the Marching Knights on their March to Victory or high- ving your section mates in the stands after a touchdown, the fun and fellowship of fall game days on campus is what makes being a Knight fan such a special experience.

THE NEW GAME DAY

In 2016, IOA Plaza was the place to be before the game. The Monster Energy Freestyle MX motocross exhibition prior to the Maryland game, carnival rides, inflatable games, food trucks and more kept fans entertained.

The inaugural year for the 96.9 The Game Tailgate Concert Series was a great success, adding live music to the pre-game atmosphere on IOA Plaza. The concert series featured acts such as Gin Blossoms, Better Than Ezra, Cowboy Mouth and Drake White.

The Knight Walk, a new tradition that started in 2016, took place right in the midst of all the activity on IOA Plaza. UCF fans welcomed the team to the stadium, ring up the Knights before they even entered the locker room.

Meanwhile, tailgating on campus continues to be one of our best traditions. Alumni, students, families and Knights fans of all ages and walks of life converge on campus to turn UCF into a sea of RVs, tailgate tents, grills, food and pre-game celebration.

The game day experience this year is so much better than past years. I think the best part of the new game day is that there are just so many different things for people to see and do.

I must say, the entire weekend was a complete success. I can't wait to get back for more games. We are from the Philadelphia area and your fans tailgate better than Eagles fans! Charge On!!

The Carl Black & Gold Cabana experience was amazing. Brought my parents and brother to their first UCF game and it blew them away. Now they are spoiled and I don't think we can do another UCF game without Cabana tickets!

Been a season ticket holder for almost 20 years - this has been the best game day experience.

Never a dull moment. The tradition of Pegasus riding across the field is one of the most stunning sights in college sports. And I'm not even a UCF alumni.

We want UCF to be big time. We are investing in the whole program with our time, our apparel, our license plates, all of it.

Anonymous Survey Response

We have a 7-year-old who was bored out of his mind last year waiting for the game to start. This year, he had such a great time between all the kids activities, the alumni tailgating, the marching band, Knightro, and the fireworks after each score. He was actually mad about leaving!

[I enjoyed] seeing and experiencing all of the upgrades made to the game day experience. A totally different experience compared to past seasons. Can't wait for our next home game!
