Arkansas Razorbacks fans who will be attending home games at Donald W. Reynold Razorback Stadium this season can watch their favorite team in luxury if they choose.
On Tuesday, the university announced that there will be “Student Skyboxes” added to the stadium beginning this season.
There will be four skyboxes added to the south endzone. According to the release, the skyboxes will include “a reserved area with a tent, carpeted flooring, lounge furniture, two big screen TVs and full sports oriented cable package. In addition, a section of bench seating will be reserved exclusively for Skybox holders.”
The skyboxes will be available for student groups to reserve.
“Many universities across the country allow student groups to reserve blocks of seats together at athletic events, but none quite like this,” said Tanner Bone, Associated Student Government (ASG) President. “Along with Athletics, ASG is excited to offer students the opportunity to take advantage of these Student Skyboxes as they continue to enjoy Razorback Football.”
Each skybox can fit up to 150 students.
“After last football season, ASG President Tanner Bone came to the Athletic Department with a problem and solution,” said Chris Freet, Senior Associate AD for External Relations. “Student groups wanted a defined areas to congregate together, especially during Homecoming and Family Weekend when they are hosting alums and parents. Based on his recommendation, we have moved the existing tents forward so they are flush against the seating area and we’ve created an intimate environment that can be reserved on a game-by-game basis for less than $5 per person.”
That is going to be a gameday experience like none other.
