Razorback Stadium increased the seating capacity from 50,019 to 72,000 (with an option to expand capacity to 76,000 with the "temporary" bleacher seating atop the south end) during the 2000-2001 renovations.
Before 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.

Great stadium with impressive expansions almost yearly. Even more impressive considering the fact that it's rarely ever full! A true testament to the mindset of an Arkansas Razorback fan. DWR is well known in all the land as the Home of The Arkansas Razorback Football Team - who are famous for... being better next year. They promise!
Great stadium, and love the bicycle valet program!!! We put our bicycles on the back of the car, parked on the bike trail a few miles away and enjoyed a lovely ride to the stadium on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The valet took our bicycles, locked them up and gave us tickets to retrieve them. We got a little exercise and saved $20 -$30 in parking fees. The stadium speakers could use some adjustments. The sound quality was really off and because we were close to them it became too annoying and we left at halftime sadly.
