LOOK: Razorback Stadium set to have new playing surface in 2019
Razorback Stadium hasn’t featured natural grass since 2009 but that will soon be changing.
The field turf located inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium has been removed with the removal of the subgrade set to take place in the coming weeks. A new subgrade will be put in by July with the installation and sodding set to begin in late July and early August leading up to the return of Razorback football inside the stadium once fall camp begins.
The natural grass is scheduled to be ready for football in late August leading up to the home opener on Saturday, Aug. 31 against Portland State.
For you grass nerds out there, Arkansas is planning on using Tahoma 31 as its playing surface. Tahoma 31 is more cold tolerant than bermuda grass and is drought resistant.
Arkansas shared the latest update on the project as the field has been cleared and the turf has been removed from the stadium.
