Florida Field was completed in 1930. It was built in a shallow ravine, so almost all of the original stands were below ground level. Comprising approximately all of the lower half of today’s east and west stands, the capacity was about 22,000.

The stadium is lovingly referred to by Florida football fans around the nation as the Swamp.
