Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (in full Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium), popularly known as "The Swamp", is an football stadium on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville and the home field of the Florida Gators football team. It was originally known as Florida Field when it opened as a 22,000 seat facility in 1930, and it has been expanded and renovated many times over the ensuing decades. Most of the university's athletic administrative offices along with most football-related offices and training areas have been located in the stadium since the 1960s, though most the football program's facilities are slated to move to a nearby $60 million building that began construction nearby in 2020.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is the largest football stadium in Florida, the 12th largest stadium in American college football, and the 18th largest stadium in the world, as measured by its official seating capacity of 88,548 – though, it has often held over 90,000 for Florida's home football games.

  • The most beautiful stadium I’ve ever seen. Just had a renovation, everything is brand new and very stylish. I can truly call that place my home, since I used to work there when was in college. I wish I could visit more often after my graduation
