Despite construction, Hogs plan to play spring game on campus
Work continues Monday, March 13, 2017, on the north end zone of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. The renovation is part of a $160 million project that will fully enclose the 78-year-old stadium. The stadium will grow from a capacity of 72,000 to about 77,000 in September 2018. The project includes new premium seating, including Founders Club Suites on the east side of the stadium, outdoor loge boxes - a cluster of four to eight seats separated from others by a partition - and club seating. The new seating areas will connect the concourse to the east and west walkways.
Arkansas plans to play its spring game at Razorback Stadium, but attendance might be capped because of construction work on the stadium's north end.
