Stadium renovations relocate 2016 FSU spring game to Orlando

Florida State will play its 2016 spring game at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida, because of renovations to Doak Campbell Stadium.

The game will take place April 9 at 5 p.m.

"With the renovations to our stadium next spring that have been provided from contributions from our fans and boosters, it gave us a unique opportunity to hold our spring weekend at another venue," coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement. "The Orlando area is a tremendous part of our Seminole fan base and it will be a great opportunity for the greatest fans in college football from across the state to see our team."

Just a few months after its spring game, Florida State will be back in Orlando to play Ole Miss to kick off the 2016 season.

"The short term construction challenges of building the Champions Club in Doak Campbell stadium have provided a unique opportunity for our 2016 spring football game," athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a statement. "We are pleased to offer our fans greater access to Florida State football at an exciting and refurbished venue in one of the best destinations cities in the world."
