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.

  • Teenage granddaughter & I had a great time cheering on the Hogs although they were defeated by MU & the coach was fired. Stadium is nice. Rows are entirely too close to have leg room, and to be ask to...  more »
  • Nice stadium, easy access. We sat in the corner next to the new suite construction & view was good. We were midway up in the stands & you felt close to the field. Restrooms large & clean. We parked in...  more »
  • Wonderful experience for the family! If you don't want to be near the speakers (that gets pretty loud) sit closer to the field or in the upper deck.  more »

  • The stadium has been under construction for about a year and half, give or take, building the last side of the stands. The view of the field off the top of the hill near maple south on razorback Rd has a pretty view, may not exist much longer. Everything is over priced at any game, anywhere. Bleachers will be hot or cold depending on weather. I gave three stars for the colors of the razorbacks. The location of this stadium is in a great spot, which is safe for families and people of all ages, within walking distance to anything immediate. If my home team ever could pull off the big game being top dog I would give 5 stars
  • I love the Hogs and really enjoy going to the stadium to watch them play. My main complaint is having to stand in line for an hour to buy food or drinks. No matter what level your seats are on or what time of the game you go, there is always a 45 minute to 1 hour wait. That and not allowing people to return to the stadium after they leave, idiotic.
  • It's a nice looking stadium and the crowd really gets into it when the Razorbacks are playing. Hopefully we get to see them actually have a good season.
  • Great atmosphere to watch football. Love to watch the Hogs in the beautiful mountains. Seating was ok but the concession lines were horrible. I missed halftime, all the third quarter and almost half the 4th for drinks. I should have gave up but I really wanted a souvenir cup.
  • Slowest concessions ever. Need a drink? Better count in missing at least a whole quarter of football.
