Venue Information


The Orlando Sports Stadium, also known as the Eddie Graham Sports Complex, was an indoor arena located in Orlando, Florida. The venue was opened in 1967 and was later re-named after professional wrestler and promoter Eddie Graham. During its existence, it hosted numerous professional wrestling and boxing contests. It was also a notable music venue, hosting concerts by famous bands and musicians including Led Zeppelin, James Brown and Elvis Presley.

The building was closed by the Orange County Building Department because of code violations in 1993 and was demolished in November 1995. The land on which it stood is now occupied by a housing development.

It was a very basic indoor arena, no air conditioning, concrete floor, wood plank benches, and plywood doors on the stalls in the bathroom, if you were lucky.
