UCF this week announced several upgrades to the school's on campus football stadium, some of which are already underway. Leading the way is improved cell connectivity, thanks to newly installed MatSing lens antennas. Each antenna pod contains 50 individual concentrated antennas, providing better and stronger coverage to each area within the stadium itself. This will provide a stronger wi-fi signal for stadium guests. Fans may recognize the name as the same cell service antennas already in use at AT&T Stadium in Texas, Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Raymond James Stadium and Amalie Arena in Tampa, and Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The new antennas will feature AT&T to begin, with additional providers expected to be added in the near future.


Perhaps the biggest and most visible addition to the stadium is that of new LED stadium lighting. The new LED lights meet the current NCAA championship-level play standards for both vertical and horizontal lighting. “Our fans will see an enhanced in-stadium experience and our broadcasts on ESPN and Fox networks will be championship quality based on the LED additions,” said Terry Mohajir, UCF vice president and director of athletics.


The number of lighting fixtures will increase by 50%, and allow UCF to take advantage of the Dynamic Scene Control System. This adds the ability to add color and flickering lights to the game-day experience. The stadium will also add new lighting for entrances and common areas - installation of the new lighting system is already underway on campus. and will be completed before the team's home opener against Kent State on August, 31, 2023.
