Razorback Stadium, 1937

1938 Razorback

What fans know today as Razorback Stadium was built in 1937 and originally called University Stadium. Other reports from the era call it Razorback Bowl. The stadium cost $82,000 and sat about 13,000 people. The quarter-mile long track built around the field was used for Razorback track and field meets up until the 1960s. The building at the south end of the east stands was a “half-house with rest quarters for both visiting and home teams,” according to archived reports. There also were “concession shelters” underneath both sets of bleachers.
