UCF football wants you to watch games from right behind the end zone

Sports teams around the country are starting to come up with more and more ideas for how fans can get as close to the action as possible. The University of Central Florida football team is the latest program to get in on the fun.

Cabanas will no longer be available only on the Florida beaches. Now, fans can sit and watch the UCF Knights in one placed right behind the end zone.

That’s right, fans of the UCF football team will have the option starting next season to sit in cabanas behind the end zones that are full of comfortable furniture, delicious food, and ice cold drinks for a cool $22,000.

UCF’s athletic program has already sold out half the suites, as it began marketing them last season when the Knights went 6-7 under first year head coach Scott Frost. The suites themselves can fit 12 people and, when they are purchased, they include tickets and parking passes for those 12 people.

The location of the suites also provides fans with access to an area with bathroom and other food and drink vendors.

“We had a waiting list for suites and we sold out of club seats and that led us to do a new club area last year,” Andy Seeley, an associate athletics director at the school, told ESPN. “But there was future interest from our market in more premium space, so we created more.”

Originally, Seeley said the plan included nine suites in the south end zone only. Once those sold out, UCF decided it was necessary to build nine more behind the north end zone.
