(4.6/5 based on 90 reviews on the web)
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.

  • One will not forget their visit to HOGS Razorback S. Calling those HOGS is unlike anything else. Also, the night before, the Stadium is lit pure RED.  more »
  • Tailgating is almost as valued as the games. Parking is segmented by ticketholder and donor status. Open parking is available but far. Bus shuttles available near handicap parking.  more »
  • My #1 piece of advice is this: KNOW YOUR GATE NUMBER! What people don't realize about the stadium is that it was built piecemeal; with the upper decks basically having been built OVER the existing sta...  more »

  • 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.
  • Love the stadium. Sodexo, however.... Recently attended an event catered at the stadium. Food staff was rude and seemed ignorant of how to work with my colleagues nut alergy.
  • Grew up near here. State of the art facility. Loud at games. Fun atmosphere.
  • Entrance was easy to find and the stadium itself is laid out fairly well. Concessions are relatively well priced and the seats look good, the bleachers are not ideal but you get what you pay for.
