Want Hogs in LR? Expand War Memorial Stadium

  • CALLING FOR MORE HOG SEATS: War Memorial Stadium Commissioin will discuss it.

It's business, sports fans. War Memorial Stadium seats 53,900. Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville seats 72,000. 19,000 more seats produces a lot of money, particularly with preferred seating rights.

So the word has apparently come down from Hogdom. You want to keep Razorback football games in Little Rock, you'll have to expand War Memorial Stadium.

The report here is that the War Memorial Stadium Commission will discuss how to do this later this month. We went down this road once before. How to pay for it? That is the question.
