1) Renovated Citrus Bowl Renovations for the Citrus Bowl were programmed into the "Triple Crown for Downtown" package in 2007, which reserved $1.1 billion in TDT tax funds between the Amway Center, the Dr. P. Phillips Performing Arts Center, and a renovation for the Citrus Bowl. The Citrus Bowl was originally reserved $250 million of that, but it was delayed because of soft tourism during the recession, and they eventually cut $75 million out of the plan. They were able to pull $10 million in 2010 for additional bathrooms and the AstroTurf pitch. The latest I've heard is a starting date in 2014. There's already a plan ready for the full renovation, which includes tearing down and replacing the lower bowl, elements of which will be pushing 80 years old when they get around to it. Although the new lower bowl will be nicer, it will force Orlando City to move elsewhere in the year they currently want to join MLS. I did find something interesting recently. The renovation plan calls for a capacity of 70,000. However, an article by George Diaz of the Sentinel last year suggests the new bowl will eliminate 10,000 seats. There are no plans to add to the upper deck. Unless that's balanced out by "completing the bowl" (adding seats in the nominally-void north end zone), this is an intriguing discrepancy. 2) SSS There have been locations in the past for an SSS. One idea from the Ajax Orlando era was a small venue downtown at the lot across from the Courthouse. This location has recently been purchased for other purposes. Some of us have coveted the Amway Arena site, which is reserved for the Creative Village. We also recently delimited a lot next to the Geico Garage, adjacent to the new Amway Center and next to where RDV is going to build their new HQ. Beyond that, location is a challenge. Realistic possibilities include areas near the Convention Center, the intersection of the Greeneway and International Drive, and the old Agere plant near John Young and the Beachline. There's also some who have suggested ESPN Wide World of Sports. Nevermind the fact that Disney does not want to host a permanent pro sports team anymore.
