In Game

A USF basketball is a great way to spend some time while visiting the Tampa-St. Pete area. The Yuengling Center is an outstanding place to see a game, and you’ll barely be able to tell that the venue is pushing four decades old. The 2012 renovation has done an incredible job of breathing new life into the arena, and you’ll find that the Yuengling Center is one of the best places to take in a game in the American Athletic Conference.

You’ll also find a fun atmosphere in the Yuengling Center. When the team is doing well, Bulls fans show up in strong numbers to support their team. Even when the team isn’t doing so hot, you’ll still encounter plenty of die hards including the famous Green and Gold Guys. These superfans cheer on the Bulls hard and are a big part of what makes attending a USF game such a great experience, so be on the lookout for them at the game.

A USF basketball game isn’t the only thing to do in Tampa. The Yuengling Center is located right near Busch Gardens, and the Yuengling Brewery isn’t too far away either meaning you’ll find plenty of reasons to make a trip to Tampa.
