The facility sits at the end of an expansive sports and recreation area that also includes George Steinbrenner Field, where MLB’s New York Yankees play spring training games.

The facility underwent a major renovation in 2016, but has also benefited from incremental expansions and upgrades as the team’s stature has risen within the league. Still, the most cherished fixtures of the now 65,000-seat stadium (expandable to 75,000) remain, most notably the 103-foot pirate ship looming above the north end zone. It fires seven or three cannon blasts for every home team touchdown or field goal.

The football facility also houses the University of South Florida Bulls football team and presides over annual college football matchups like the ReliaQuest Bowl and Gasparilla Bowl.
