About Texas Memorial Stadium

With a capacity for 100,119 fans, Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium, serves as the home for The Texas Longhorns football team. The stadium was first opened to the public on November 8, 1924, which was also the date of the first game ever played at the field. To date, the field can be said to provide a home field advantage, as the Longhorns have a 375-117-10 record at the field through November 17, 2018. It currently stands as the eighth largest stadium in the US and the ninth largest stadium in the world.


In 1923, former UT athletics director L. Theo Bellmont, along with 30 student leaders, presented the idea of building a concrete stadium to replace the wooden bleachers of Clark Field to the Board of Regents. The plan was to build “The Largest sports facility of its kind in the Southwest”. Upon its completion, it seated 27,000 persons in what became the lower level of the current stadium’s east and west grandstands. Originally, it was designed to also have a 440-yard track surrounding the field.

The stadium was dedicated in honor of the 198,520 Texans who fought in World War I. It featured a statue representing the figure of democracy that was later placed atop the north end zone seats of the stadium. When World War II claimed the lives of many former players, the stadium was rededicated after it was enlarged on September 18, 1948 prior to the Texas-LSU game.

Later, on November 12, 1977, a small granite monument was unveiled and placed at the base of the statue as part of another rededication. This time the dedication was for the memory of all alumni who fought in as well as those who died during all American wars.

The stadium was then named after legendary football coach Darrel K Royal, who had enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in 1943. Royal had led Texas to three national championships and eleven Southwest Conference titles.
