Florida State Football: FSU Moving 2016 Spring Game To Orlando's Citrus Bowl

Florida State is renovating Doak Campbell Stadium, adding a "Champions Club" to the 82,000 seat behemoth, which will cause the program to move its 2016 spring football game. Rather than moving it to a smaller venue in the Tallahassee area, FSU is using the opportunity to make an event out of it. The game will take place in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl, per Seminoles.com.

“The short term construction challenges of building the Champions Club in Doak Campbell stadium have provided a unique opportunity for our 2016 spring football game,” said Wilcox. “We are pleased to offer our fans greater access to Florida State football at an exciting and refurbished venue in one of the best destinations cities in the world. Moving the game to Orlando and partnering with Steve Hogan and his staff at Florida Citrus Sports will allow us to platform the game and Florida State athletics in exciting and unique new ways.”

 Jimbo Fisher seems excited about the opportunity.

“We are excited to play our 2016 spring game at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, said FSU head football coach Jimbo Fisher. “With the renovations to our stadium next spring that have been provided from contributions from our fans and boosters, it gave us a unique opportunity to hold our spring weekend at another venue. The Orlando area is a tremendous part of our Seminole fan base and it will be a great opportunity for the greatest fans in college football from across the state to see our team. Couple that with the fact that we are opening the 2016 season against Ole Miss in the Citrus Bowl and it made sense.”

Orlando area FSU fans won't be lacking Seminoles football action in 2016.
