Sports & Recreation

You might know that Fayetteville is home to the Arkansas Razorbacks, but it’s also consistently ranked the #1 place to live in the SEC! Whether it’s football, baseball, basketball, volleyball or any of the other 11 sports at the University of Arkansas, die-hard fans pack the stadium rain or shine to call the Hogs. Our city’s enthusiasm for sports goes beyond college team spirit, too – we’re home to the NWA Roller Derby, a World Championship Cyclocross course, and a disc golfer’s paradise. Wherever and whatever you want to play, we can help you find it in Fayetteville!

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 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. Interested in bringing your event to our incredible city? Connect with us.
