The Florida-Georgia rivalry game (previously recognized as the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party) has traditionally been played as an annual, neutral-site contest in Jacksonville. For a while, the location of the game in the 2024 and 2025 seasons has been up in the air, but that matter was put to bed Wednesday.

With a joint release, Florida announced that the Gators and Bulldogs have exercised their option to play at TIAA Bank Field — home of the Jacksonville Jaguars — in the 2024 and 2025 seasons. The existing game contract contained a clause outlining an option to keep the game at the neutral site the following two seasons, provided the City of Jacksonville was notified prior to June 30, 2023, and the schools are formally notifying the city of their intentions this week.

“The City of Jacksonville has been an historic host for one of the great rivalry games in all of college football,” Florida Athletics Director Scott Stricklin said. “We are excited to have the game in Jacksonville for another two seasons.”

“We are pleased with the decision to exercise the option that will keep the game in Jacksonville for 2024 and 2025,” said UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Josh Brooks.  “We look forward to discussions that I’m sure will continue over the next couple years exploring all the options for 2026 and beyond. We continue to be appreciative of the working relationship we have with the University of Florida and the City of Jacksonville.”

The annual rivalry game has been played in Jacksonville since 1933 with the exception of the 1994 and 1995 seasons due to the construction of TIAA Bank Field. Georgia is riding a 2-game winning streak and has taken 5 of the last 6 in the series. The Bulldogs lead the all-time series 55-44-2.
