Ever since I was young I was a sports nut. I loved spending time with my dad watching football and screaming my head off at the TV for what appeared to be no good reason. It was so much fun that when I went to college at Florida State (Go Noles!) the thing I was most excited about was going to Doak Campbell Stadium in my trademark garnet and gold and cheering on my beloved team with a crowd full of people who were equally excited. With football season getting underway recently I put my event pro cap on and after a little research, come to find out that a great deal of stadiums have event spaces that you can have your wedding or other event. So celebrate your team while becoming a member of your ultimate team as man and wife.

University Center Club at Florida State University: As a Florida State alum, this venue would definitely be at the top of my personal list. Located not only in the heart of the Florida State University Campus, but also in Doak Campbell Stadium (where the Seminoles play), this is the perfect venue for the football fan at heart and is the only college sports venue on this list.
