Gov. Asa Hutchinson Tuesday unveiled a proposal to make War Memorial Stadium a part of the state Department of Parks and Tourism in order to keep the aging, urban Little Rock arena self-sufficient.

The Arkansas Razorbacks will play the Samford Bulldogs this Saturday at 6 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium. Thousands of Razorback fans will gather on the War Memorial Stadium to cheer them on and celebrate before the game. Marketing Director Danny-Joe Crawford says over 50 thousand people usually show up to tailgate. He says some people come a few days before game day and camp out in the park.

“We have RV’s that’s been there since Monday. They’re called ‘The Roadhogs’ and they travel to all the Arkansas games,” Crawford said.
