It is a magnificent football stadium, impressive. It is not so difficult to get tickets unless it is a game against Georgia. Try to get early so you can cheer the players outside the stadium.

Such a great football stadium to watch a game in. Not a bad seat in the entire place. Went on a non football weekend and the stadium is completely open to walk around. Good way to get a good workout.

They do something at the University of Florida in Gainesville that, to my knowledge, nobody else does at any other college in the country. They open the gates of the football stadium, 90,000-seat Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, or Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin...More

We bought 2 tickets to the game there. The seats were good. Naturally, traffic is a nightmare. Otherwise, all went well.

The best bet to be sure is call the Athletic Department so they can give you more details especially what times is the stadium open and security. 0 seconds ago
