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.

  • Being an Alabama fan, I visited this stadium in 2016 when Alabama played Arkansas. Although the stadium is much smaller than Alabama's, it is beautiful. The atmosphere was great. It was very loud, esp...  read more »
  • My wife and I are traveling to various college football stadiums each Labor Day weekend, and since I root for Arkansas, we went to the Arkansas-La. Tech game on 9/3/2016. Naturally, I was thrilled to ...  read more »
  • All Razorback fans should experience a game at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. No re-entry so you can't leave once you enter. 
  • 2016 La Tech Game Day experience was AWFUL. Upper deck east side concessions were woefully undermanned. Lines miles long. Hot water when you finally got to the front. Clueless ushers directing people to box seats I've had for twenty years. I pay $1000 donation and another $1000 in tickets for this? SEC Network looking better and better. 25+ year Tush Hog member here. C'mon man!
  • This is the holy grail for Arkansas fans! Big stadium and loud. Anywhere in the stadium is a good seat. Great tailgating and free parking at Baum Stadium down the road with a free shuttle to and from the stadium by Razorback Transit. It is a little crazy leaving and food is pricey but overall a great stadium. A lot of history here too under the stands and around the concessions. Only complaint is if you're on the SW side of the stadium and you need to go to a SE gate, you have to walk around the entire stadium to the North because they blocked off the road South of the stadium. Also just a warning that the East side seats are hot in the early part of the season during a day game, but warmer when it's a day game during the colder months. I love calling the hogs in this stadium. Woo Pig Sooie. Go Hogs! 🐗
  • One of the best stadiums in the SEC on one of the most beautiful campuses in the SEC. The stadium is loud, the concessions are great and the people are mostly kind. Great place to be for tailgating. Go Hogs!
  • An amazing experience. Go Razorbacks!
  • Awesome place for a football game!
