War Memorial exploring possibility of expansion

The War Memorial Stadium commission is exploring the possibility of expansion as a way to try and keep two Arkansas football games there in the future.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — The War Memorial Stadium commission is exploring the possibility of expansion as a way to try and keep two Arkansas football games there in the future.

Stadium manager Charles Staggs says architects will present the commission with drawings at its next meeting later this month. He said Tuesday the plans will feature additional high-priced club seating and would likely expand the press box so it would take up the entire west side of the stadium.

Staggs says he is concerned the Razorbacks might play fewer games in Little Rock after the school's contract with the stadium runs out after the 2016 season.

Arkansas announced plans in October for a future expansion of the 72,000-seat Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. War Memorial Stadium has a capacity of 53,955.
