UCF's CFE Arena was recently named the third best venue in Venues Today magazine's "Florida Top Stops" list.

The ranking is determined by Florida venues with a capacity between 5,001-10,000, in addition to their 2014 event season gross ticket sales and attendance. 

This marks the seventh consecutive year that the arena made the "Top Stops" list.

Back in February, Venues Today ranked the forum fifth in the nation for university venue ticket sales. 

In addition to accommodating the UCF men's and women's basketball teams this past season, CFE Arena also hosted more than 35 events, including Darius Rucker, Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B., Fitz and the Tantrums and Amy Schumer

While most events for the arena's 2015 season are over, Grammy award-winning singer Chris Tomlin will perform at the CFE Arena at 7 p.m Sunday, Oct. 18.
