“Walt Disney World Resort and UCF share a commitment to making Central Florida a key destination for sports,” said Faron Kelley, vice president of Disney Sports. “With this agreement, we hope to reach even more of Knight Nation.”

The new multi-year agreement includes shared marketing opportunities, in-game promotions at UCF home football games, and Disney signage inside Spectrum Stadium. This agreement also extends UCF and Disney’s current relationship, as they joined together as part of the Disney Aspire education investment program. Disney Aspire offers 100-percent free tuition to eligible hourly Disney employees and Cast Members, making it easier for them to pursue higher education and reach their career goals.

“As Orlando’s hometown college football team, we are thrilled to be teaming up with Disney to add a touch of magic for fans at Spectrum Stadium,” said Danny White, vice president and director of athletics at UCF. “Additionally, this agreement enables UCF to have the most unique student-athlete experience in the country as every year all of our student-athletes will have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World Resort.”
