Spectrum Stadium (formerly known as Bright House Networks Stadium) is an American football stadium located in Orlando, Florida, United States, on the main campus of the University of Central Florida. It is the home field of the UCF Knights of NCAA Division I FBS college football.

The stadium opened in 2007 as a replacement for Camping World Stadium (then known as the Citrus Bowl) in Downtown Orlando, where the Knights had played since their inaugural season in 1979. The steel and brick-clad stadium was designed by 360 Architecture and constructed in 18 months. The stadium underwent an $8 million renovation following the 2014 season. The Wayne Densch Center for Student-Athlete Leadership was built on the east facade of the stadium, and a party deck was added to the east stands. Since the renovations, its seating capacity is 44,206. The attendance record as of the 2018 season was 48,453 for an October 18, 2009 match-up against the Miami Hurricanes. Spectrum Stadium was the home of the Orlando Apollos during the first and only 2019 season of the Alliance of American Football.

Spectrum Stadium has been nicknamed The Bounce House, as it was found to be susceptible to considerable shaking when its crowd jumps in unison. Although it was stated that the stadium was structurally sound and that this effect would not cause long-term damage to the facility, measures were undertaken following the stadium's inaugural season to reduce these effects.

  • We got there about 5 o'clock and the restaurant was not on a wait. We order and got our drinks and appetizers in adequate time. After we ordered out main meal which was a salad and tacos. It was 30 minutes and no one approached us. No managers had name tags to display the position they work in the restaurant so that made it difficult to find someone. After talking with the manager he said they are working on getting out now. After 45 minutes and no food we left. They bought our dessert and removed the main meal.
  • Good time at the USF game. 1st time there. Stadium is nice enough but no beer or alcohol is served. Kind of a bummer. Would be nice to have a couple of cold beers while watching the game.
