The Razorbacks' home venue in Central Arkansas for 65 years, War Memorial Stadium/AT&T Field is slated to host Arkansas football games until 2016 after a two-year extension was signed in August 2008. During that span, the facility will host two UA games annually, including at least one Southeastern Conference game each season.
Three-year UA letterman and Congressional Medal of Honor Winner Maurice (Footsie) Britt was the featured speaker during dedication ceremonies for War Memorial Stadium on Sept. 18, 1948. On that day, a crowd of 24,950 (a record football attendance in Arkansas at that time) watched the Razorbacks defeat Abilene Christian, 40-6.
During its 65-year existence, the facility has expanded from its original capacity of 31,000 to its current figure of 53,955. The Razorbacks enter the 2012 season with a record of 148-52-5 (.734) inside War Memorial Stadium.
A complete lighting system and Astroturf surface were added for the 1970 season with a new artificial surface to follow in 1974. Ten years later, another new layer of artificial turf was installed before a return to natural grass was made in 1994. AstroPlay was installed for the 2002 season.
War Memorial Stadium installed a new turf manufactured by Field Turf during the summer of 2010 and the field was named AT&T Field. In addition, a new 7.5 million dollar press box that includes 500 club seats was constructed for the 2010 football season.
