"THE GATOR EXPERIENCE"
Sep 2021
The Ben Hill Griffin Stadium offers a great time for families and friends. They have a large selection of food and drinks for reasonable prices. The energy in the stadium during a game is electric as the fans chant and sing songs that have been sung for generations. I highly recommend you visit for a game in the Swamp.

A very beautiful stadium
Oct 2019
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is a great stadium to watch college football games with a great atmosphere with all the Florida fans cheering for the Florida Gators. When there is no game, it's still a great place to visit or to run around.

The University of Florida has traditions that exemplify the American spirit. The Swamp (Ben Hill Griffin Stadium) has an atmosphere that all sports fans should experience. The way the stadium is designed creates a louder sound that reverberates and almost shakes your core. The cheers and the excitement are electric.

There are several things that you will want to watch if you go to a game. Get there early so that you can witness the Mr. Two Bits cheer. You will also see the Pride of the Sunshine Marching Band perform and the Gators run out on the field.

During the third quarter, there are also two more special traditions. The “Old Boys of Florida” song is played and the entire stadium latches arms and sways. It is visually breathtaking. Tom Petty is a Gainesville native. After his death, UF started playing his song “Won’t Back Down” after “Old Boys of Florida.” The whole stadium belts it at the top of their lungs. If it is a night game, everyone pulls out their phones and waves the light in the air. It’s magical.

If you are on campus and there is not a football game playing, the stadium is open 24/7. You can go in and see the field. If you like exercising, running “stadiums” as Gators call it, is the greatest workout. There will likely be others running/ climbing with you.

Enjoy it and Go Gators!

Great Atmosphere

Seats on the 15 and the view and sight lines were great. The Gator band adds to the experience. It's great that Coach Mullen has the program back and the Swamp is electric.

Auburn-Florida game
Oct 2019 • Friends
Stadium was nice. But the seats were numbered odd. Had a great time. Campus was pretty cool. The stadium is alcohol free. Just an FYI. Didn’t have enough TV screens when you leave for a drink or the bathroom.

Entusiastic Florida football fans who cheer and sing in unison - incredibly loud game!!
Oct 2019
We were fans from the visiting team and were happy to cheer alongside our Auburn band assembled for our "Tiger Walk" as Auburn's team buses came on campus. We were given a tailgate tent number so we could find our pregame gathering, but we did not see any numbers on the tents. Even though it was difficult to find our tailgate tent, we did get to see a good bit of the campus and noticed how lovely the trees and buildings were. When we entered the stadium we were very appreciative of the big water stations that had plenty of complimentary cups and cold water! It was very hot and our seats were in direct sun. The Florida fans cheer and sing with great spirit! It was the loudest football game we have ever experienced (such a great advantage for the home team). I could appreciate the experience and will have good sportsmanship, but do not think I would enjoy going back because it was unbearably loud and extremely hot.

Walking through campus on your way to the stadium is awesome. Many tailgaters having a great time. Seeing all the fans and just feeling like your around family!

Not as bad as I expected.....
Oct 2019
We are trying to visit all SEC stadiums as a bucket list, this will be the last time Auburn visits Gainesville for a number of years. I always heard how loud and rouady the fans were here. The fans could not have been nicer, the stadium was loud but I have heard it louder. The field looks great and appeared in good shape. The stands were nothing special, just bench seats and pretty close together, much like our home stadium. It is not a upper deck on most of the seats which gives a better view of the field. Concourse space was very limited and difficult to get to restrooms and concessions. Only real problem was trying to fill a water bottle with VERY low pressure. Overall not a bad place, just wish we had won, LOL.

A Crowded Cluster including a Combative Custodian
Oct 2019 • Couples
This was not my first visit to the Swamp but it’s is likely my last. You’ll pay $4 for a bottle of water in the 90+ degree heat. The seats are close quarters so you’ll likely get kicked in the rear by the person sitting behind you. Don’t try to go anywhere at half time because the tunnels from the stands to the restrooms/vending areas are too narrow to accommodate those coming AND going. It was also my first experience with a custodian who was yelling at the fans trying to use the restroom that they “were coming in the wrong side” which was not marked. She also tried to block me when I tried to enter a stall and told another fan to “get her stank a** out of here”. Totally unacceptable and UF should be embarrassed by this behavior. I am as an alum.
