The Florida Citrus Bowl (official name is Orlando-Orange County Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium) is a stadium in Orlando, Florida, USA, built for American football and currently seats over 65,000. Its main occupant is the football program at UCF, the annual Florida Classic between Florida A&M University and Bethune-Cookman College, and two college bowl games annually, the Capital One Bowl and the Champs Sports Bowl.

The stadium opened in 1936, with a capacity of 10,000. The first college football game was played on January 1, 1947. Catawba defeated Maryville 31-6. Two thousand seats were added in 1952. Five thousand more seats were added in 1968, along with the first press box. From 1974-76 the capacity was raised to 52,000. The current capacity of 65,438 was established in 1989, after a $38 million renovation that added the upper decks. In 1983, the Florida Department of Citrus was added as a title sponsor for the facility, at a price of $250,000.

From 1999 to 2002, key stadium improvements included the addition of contour seating, two escalators, and a new 107-foot wide video screen. A new sound system, along with two full-color displays along the upper decks, was also added.
