Camping World Stadium, the grandfather of the Orlando Venues facilities, has quite a history. It was originally constructed in 1936, with seating for 8,900 people. The first annual bowl game was held in 1947, for the benefit of the Elks and was called the Tangerine Bowl Game. The Camping World Stadium is the home of the annual New Year’s Day football classic, The Captial One Bowl, The Champs Sports Bowl, The Florida Classic and Jones High School football team games. It was also the site of five 1994 World Cup Soccer games and 1996 Olympic Soccer – first/second rounds. The Stadium has been host to “Rock Superbowls” featuring such performers as The Rolling Stones, The Who, Genesis, Pink Floyd, George Michael, Paul McCartney, Guns ‘n Roses, Billy Joel/Elton John and the Eagles. In addition to these top concert acts, the Camping World Stadium also hosts the AMA Supercross Series and the Superbowl of Motor Sports.
