The UCF Soccer and Track Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located on the main campus of the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida, USA. The 2,000-seat stadium is home to the UCF Knights track and field, cross country and soccer teams. The Knights compete in the American Athletic Conference (The American).
UCF's Soccer and Track Stadium is located on the northern edge of the University of Central Florida's 1,415-acre (573 ha) main campus, which is approximately 13 miles (21 km) northeast of downtown Orlando and 55 miles (89 km) southwest of Daytona Beach.
The stadium is located within Knights Plaza, which is a part of UCF's Athletic Village. The Plaza is home to the CFE Arena, the indoor arena of UCF Knights basketball, and The Venue, home of the Knights volleyball program and Bright House Networks Stadium. Also located in Knights Plaza are Jay Bergman Field, the home field of Knights baseball, and The Towers residence halls, which house 2,000 UCF students, including student-athletes.
The stadium was built in 1991, and during the summer of 2004, the track was resurfaced and enhanced. The complex underwent another further renovation in 2008, adding long jump and triple jump pits as well as an expanded throwing area.
In 2011, the stadium was heavily renovated, boasting a 2,000 seat capacity with a new 1,475-seat stand, press box, 7,500 square feet (700 m2) clubhouse, restrooms and new entrance on the west side of the facility. The original 500-seat stand was retained as a visitors' stand. The renovated stadium opened in May 2011.
