UCF to build lazy river next to football stadium

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The University of Central Florida is taking tailgating to another level for the 2020 football season with plans for a lazy river outside the stadium.

UCF announced this month that they’ll be offering 250 McNamara Cove memberships for $2,500 each. The all-inclusive package covers “covegating” for all regular-season home games.

McNamara Cove will be located right next to Spectrum Stadium. Opening several hours before kickoff, guests will have access to the lazy river, a pool, sand volleyball courts, lounge chairs, a bocce ball green and a service cabana.

Outside of game days, McNamara Cove will provide student-athletes with a leisure and recovery space as part of the $30 million Kenneth G. Dixon Athletics Village.

Tom and Stacey McNamara made a naming gift commitment of $1 million last year.
