Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium is an American football stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas and serves as the home field of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks football team since its opening in 1938. The stadium was formerly known as Razorback Stadium since 1941 before being renamed in 2001 in honor of Donald W. Reynolds, an American businessman and philanthropist. The playing field in the stadium is named the Frank Broyles Field, honoring former Arkansas head football coach and athletic director Frank Broyles.Razorback Stadium increased the seating capacity from 50,019 to 72,000 (with an option to expand capacity to 80,000 with temporary bleacher seating atop the south end) during the 2000-2001 renovations.HistoryBefore 1938, the Razorbacks played in a 300-seat stadium built in 1901 on land on top of "The Hill", which is now occupied by Mullins Library and the Fine Arts Center (in the "center" of campus). The new stadium cost approximately $492,000 and was funded by the Works Progress Administration, with the University of Arkansas only paying 22% of the contact. The stadium opened for the 1938 football season as University Stadium, holding a capacity of 13,500 spectators. In the home opener for the Razorbacks, the Razorbacks defeated Oklahoma A&M by a score of 27–7 on September 24, 1938. The following week, Arkansas dedicated the stadium to then sitting Arkansas Governor Carl E. Bailey on October 3, 1938, changing the name of the stadium to Bailey Stadium. Following Governor Bailey's defeat in the 1940 gubernatorial election to Homer Martin Adkins, the stadium's name was changed in 1941 to Razorback Stadium.

  • I love going here in the fall for football games. The facility is nice and it truly has the football stadium feel.  more »
  • Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium has the greatest energy of any sports arena i have ever visited. The crowd here is electric and cannot be compared to any other NCAA fan base. Calling the HOGS is ...  more »
  • Passion, excitement, and drama, and that is just trying to find a parking spot! After your car is parked you will be treated to a first class event at the Home of the Razorbacks.  more »

  • This place is absolutely great. Great area. Beautiful area. People are always friendly. This place is really up to date and offers so much.
  • It can get a bit crowded, but that's ok. The atmosphere is electric. Decent food selection, but you don't get your money's worth. Then again, I can't think of a similar venue that's any better. Traffic in and out can be rough, but the new traffic flow layout helps keep folks from sitting too long in traffic.
  • Best place to watch a college football game. No other stadium is like it. Fans are great.
  • Modern despite its age. Cozy but feels larger than it is. Mostly good fans who handled their win well when we visited. Will return, but not until we have better team to bring.
  • Beautiful stadium with great views all around. Could use a few more bathrooms and concession stands, but if you just care about football, there aren't many better stadiums.
