AT&T Trough now AT&T Fan Zone at the Gardens

FAYETTEVILLE – Beginning with the 2011 football season, the AT&T Trough will move to the Gardens for home games at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville and has been renamed the AT&T Fan Zone at the Gardens.

"We are excited for our fans to experience the new and improved AT&T Fan Zone at the Gardens," Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. "With its new location, the AT&T Fan Zone will provide fans with a centralized tailgate area creating a great game day atmosphere for fans of all ages. I would encourage Razorback fans to arrive on campus early to enjoy this free and festive pre-game event."

The AT&T Fan Zone is free to the public and will feature live bands for select games, including the season opener against Missouri State on Sept. 3 with music beginning at 3 p.m. A wide assortment of food and drinks will be available for purchase, and the A Club honorary captain will be there to sign autographs. Inflatable games also will be available for children.

In the AT&T Fan Zone, located south of Bud Walton Arena off Razorback Rd., fans will continue to have the opportunity to tailgate in areas open to the general public. Fans that do not have parking privileges within the Gardens or in adjacent parking lots can unload tailgating supplies in the north and south ends of the Gardens up to three hours prior to kickoff. The AT&T Fan Zone also will offer public seating areas under tents with big screen TVs.

The AT&T Fan Zone location in Little Rock will remain on the north side of War Memorial Stadium along Markham Street.

Season tickets are also still available for the 2011 season. Season ticket packages for Fayetteville home games are $255. A limited number of east indoor club ($750) and south indoor club ($500) season tickets are also available. Season ticket packages for Little Rock are available for $120.

Seat locations for season tickets purchased as part of the general sale will apply only to the 2011 season and are not guaranteed for future season ticket renewals.
