ORLANDO, Fla. -

The first two seats in the south end zone are installed, and crews have about four months to get the Citrus Bowl game ready.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer led a tour through the construction on Friday.

He says about 400 workers are on site every day, installing the score board, escalators, bathrooms and more.

There's more than 57,000 square feet of space on the sidelines for fans.

Dyer says fans can expect a state of the art game day experience.

"We have amenities for every ticket level and we have new premium areas that are going to great and I can't wait to host the first three football games here this year," he said.

Dyer says his favorite part of the stadium- the party deck- should be done by the next tour, which will be early September.

The work needs to be finished by November, for the Florida Classic football game between Florida A & M and Bethune-Cookman universities.
