It hosts the Citrus Bowl, the Cure Bowl, the Camping World Bowl, the Florida Classic between Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman, the MEAC/SWAC Challenge, and Monster Jam. In the past it has served as home of several alternate-league American football teams. The stadium hosted Orlando City SC of the USL Pro from 2010 to 2013. The stadium later hosted the Major League Soccer incarnation of Orlando City SC in 2015 and 2016 while a new MLS-specific stadium was under construction.
From 1979–2006, it served as the home of the UCF Knights football team. It was also one of the nine venues used for the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
The stadium's lower bowl was demolished and rebuilt during most of 2014, with the renovations completed in time for the 2014 bowl season.
