Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium

Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium is an American football arena in Fayetteville, Arkansas and fills in as the home field of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks football crew since its opening in 1938. The arena was previously known as Razorback Stadium beginning around 1941 preceding being renamed in 2001 out of appreciation for Donald W. Reynolds, an American money manager and humanitarian. The battleground in the arena is named the Frank Broyles Field, respecting previous Arkansas head football trainer and athletic chief Frank Broyles.

During the 2000-2001 remodels, Razorback Stadium expanded the seating limit from 50,019 to 72,000, with a choice to extend ability to 76,000 with the “transitory” grandstand seating on the south end.

Before 1938, the Razorbacks played in a 300-seat arena worked in 1901 ashore on top of “The Hill”, which is presently involved by Mullins Library and the Fine Arts Center (in the “middle” of grounds). The new arena cost roughly $492,000 and was subsidized by the Works Progress Administration, with the University of Arkansas just paying 22% of the agreement. The arena opened for the 1938 football season as University Stadium, holding a limit of 13,500 observers. In the home opener for the Razorbacks, the Razorbacks crushed Oklahoma A&M by a score of 27–7 on September 24, 1938. The next week, Arkansas devoted the arena to then sitting Arkansas Governor Carl E. Bailey on October 3, 1938, changing the name of the arena to Bailey Stadium. Following Governor Bailey’s loss in the 1940 gubernatorial political decision to Homer Martin Adkins, the arena’s name was changed in 1941 to Razorback Stadium.

Beginning around 1948, home games were split between two scenes: Razorback Stadium and War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock. Due to the arena remodels in 1999-2000, Razorbacks athletic chief Frank Broyles needed to move all home games to Razorback Stadium to assist pay with offing the $30 million bond. Broyles called attention to that the extended Razorback Stadium would expand income to $3 million for every game, contrasted with the $2 million for each game for playing at War Memorial Stadium.

Be that as it may, Little Rock financial backers would rather avoid moving all home games to Fayetteville and countered with a proposal to remodel and grow War Memorial Stadium to expand income. Likewise, Little Rock financial backer Warren Stephens took steps to suspend his family’s help ($150,000 in yearly gifts with an extra $1 million in yearly help from his family’s organization Stephens Inc.) for the program assuming games were pulled from Little Rock.

Subsequent to paying attention to both Chuck Neinas (Broyles’ advisor on the issue) and Stephens in January 2000, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees casted a ballot 9-1 to sign a compromised contract with the proprietors of War Memorial Stadium. The agreement would keep something like two Razorbacks games, with one being a meeting game, in Little Rock until the finish of the 2014 season. In 2008, the agreement with War Memorial Stadium was reached out through the 2016 football season by athletic chief Jeff Long.

In 2014, a five-year contract called for one game to be played at War Memorial Stadium each season through 2018. In 2014 and 2018, the game was a meeting adversary. In 2015, 2016, and 2017 the game was a non-meeting group. 2018 denoted the 70th commemoration of the Razorbacks playing in War Memorial Stadium.

In 2018, one more understanding was endorsed to mess around in War Memorial Stadium through 2024. The new agreement indicates that each home game versus the University of Missouri will be played at War Memorial through the 2023 season. Whenever the Missouri game is out and about in Columbia, Missouri, the Razorbacks will play their yearly Red-White Spring Game at War Memorial in April through 2024. In any case, there will be no authority Razorbacks football match-ups played at War Memorial Stadium in those seasons. This implies the 2020 season will be the first without a game at War Memorial Stadium since its opening 72 years sooner.
