The Bounce House is about to undergo some significant improvements.
A $125 million proposal to transform the 45,040-seat stadium on the campus of the University of Central Florida includes up to $4.8 million to “start design” for the project, according to the Orlando Business Journal.
Improvements to the stadium and surrounding facilities include the formation of McNamara Cove that will feature a $5.8 million “recovery river,” as well as cold and hot pools for football players.
Other additions: The relocation of the east practice field ($4.7M), a new million tower for offices and a club lodge ($60M), and a north seating deck and enhanced concourse that would add 5,000 bench seats for students ($30M).
Stadium seating capacity would increase to 46,490.
The stadium that opened Sept. 15, 2007 and cost $55 million at the time is home to the UCF Knights, who went 9-4 in 2021 before defeating Florida in the Gasparilla Bowl.
