FAYETTEVILLE – A new football center designed to meet the modern needs of a program competing in the nation’s most competitive athletic conference is being planned for Razorback Football it was announced by University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long on Wednesday.
Plans for the football center include construction of a new locker room, team meeting rooms, athletic training room, equipment room, a student-athlete lounge and study area, coaches offices, a recruiting reception area and a football museum celebrating the tradition of Razorback Football. The proposed football center would be constructed immediately south of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium adjacent to the Walker Family Training Center. Football practice fields currently at that location would be re-located to the south side of the Walker Family Training Center. Preliminary plans for the football center were developed in conjunction with an ongoing facilities master plan being developed for Razorback Athletics.
