UA unveils $300 million sports facilities plan

Posted By on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 1:43 PM

The University of Arkansas is rolling out its $300 million athletic facilities master plan today. It includes a 2 p.m. livestreamed press conference by Athletic Director Jeff Long.

It includes something for all 19 men's and women's sports over a 30-year period, but I'd guess that the big revenue sports — football and basketball — will lead the agenda.

$300 million is a lot of seat premiums.

At news conference, Long said the inclusion of a Razorback Stadium expansion doesn't mean Little Rock Hog games will be eliminated. "That decision will be made sometime in the future," Long is quoted on Twitter by a NWA reporter. If Fayetteville has 30,000 to 40,000 more seats than Little Rock, I think I know the decision ahead of time.
