Florida Georgia Weekend Is More Then Just A Game

The game may only be four quarters, but the Florida-Georgia experience lasts all weekend

The annual Florida-Georgia rivalry is an iconic national event that brings the Jacksonville community together to celebrate college football like no other city in the country. A time-honored tradition since 1933, it has become a showcase for one of the rivalries that make college football great. EverBank Field typically seats 64,000, but we’ve increased the capacity to 82,000+ for Florida-Georgia. With 55,000 square feet of video screens inside the stadium, there’s no such thing as a bad seat! This rivalry has had its fair share of star players, from Georgia greats Herschel Walker, Matthew Stafford, & Scott Woerner to Florida legends Danny Wuerffel, Fred Taylor, & Tim Tebow. Not to mention some of the greatest coaches to walk the sideline, including Vince Dooley and Steve Spurrier.

The Florida–Georgia football rivalry is an American college football rivalry game played annually by the University of Florida Gators and the University of Georgia Bulldogs. The game was first played in 1915, and has been played every season since 1926, except for a war-time interruption in 1943. This match-up between Southeastern Conference opponents is one of the most prominent rivalry games in college football, and has been held in Jacksonville, Florida since 1933, with only two exceptions, making it one of the few remaining neutral-site rivalries in college football. The game attracts huge crowds to Jacksonville, and the associated tailgating and other events earned it the nickname of the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party“, although that name is no longer used officially.
