Sports & Recreation

Most people know that Fayetteville is home to the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. In fact, Fayetteville is Named the No. 4 Best College Town in the Nation and Fayetteville is ranked #1 place to live in the SEC. While the region packs the stadium to call the Hogs, enthusiasm for sports goes beyond college team spirit.

Fayetteville is the ideal backdrop to host sporting events of all kinds and sizes. The north-south Interstate I-49 connects the largest towns in the region and in doing so expands the possibilities for larger events. We have the facilities, the know-how and all the resources to knock your sporting event out of the park.

The 2018 University of Arkansas men’s baseball season is underway, and the Razorbacks are looking to make their way to Omaha for the College World Series. Coached by Dave Van Horn, watching the “Diamond Hogs” at Baum Stadium is one of the most popular things to do in Fayetteville during the spring and summer months.

Looking for something new to do in Northwest Arkansas? Catch a NWA Roller Derby game and you won't be bored!

Roller derby is a completely unique, high-impact sport that is known for being totally inclusive of age, gender, nationality and background. It consists of two teams of five players roller skating around a track trying to get a designated team member (the "jammer") to lap members of the opposing team.

The Arkansas Razorbacks kick off another season of college football today at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, AR. Little Rock has a long-standing tradition of hosting at least one game a year for the hogs, but most home games are played at the University of Arkansas campus right here in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

On game day, you can feel the buzz of energy coursing throughout our town as tailgates pop-up, restaurants welcome visitors and the University of Arkansas fills with friendly faces. With a newly expanded and upgraded stadium underway and a hint of fall in the air, Donald W. Reynolds Stadium in Fayetteville is the perfect destination for SEC football lovers. In fact, Fayetteville was named the best place to live in the SEC.

Every fall, Razorback fans travel to Fayetteville to watch the Hogs play football. College game day is a staple of American culture, especially in the South and SEC, but the weekend fun is much more than a Saturday battle on the gridiron. Besides tailgating and cheering at Reynolds Razorback Stadium, here are some of the most popular traditions and things to do Friday through Sunday while in Fayetteville for a football game.

Date: June 2-5

The University of Arkansas Razorbacks are hosting one of the NCAA Regional Tournaments in Fayetteville this coming weekend as part of the Division I Baseball Championship. Missouri State University, Oklahoma State University and Oral Roberts University will be coming to town to compete against the Hogs for a spot in the College World Series in Omaha.

With each team guaranteed to play both Friday and Saturday, and possibly Sunday and Monday, many fans will be staying in Fayetteville until their team’s season ends — or until they head to the Super Regionals June 9-12.
