University of Arkansas North End Zone: Facts and figures of new US$160m expansion

0

The US$160m redevelopment project, led by architect firm Populous, offers fans of Razorback football a brand-new look with a new main entrance. On the inside there will be new suites and seating circulation spread across six building levels; offices; stadium technologies; the stadium’s first 360° concourse and roof top deck, which form part of the 280,347ft² renovation.

The new North End Zone will feature 40 new suites, 68 loge boxes and 2,200 club seats. Of those new suites it will feature the first operable wall in college football where all 40 can be combined into one large suite or any number in between.

Claiming another college football stadium first is its convex videoboard, which it the first of its kind and spans 6,300ft².

Not only providing a greater matchday experience, the investment will also enable the venue to be used throughout the year with the opportunity for its clubs and lounges to hold events to generate extra revenue streams – a growing evolution among collegiate football end zones.
