Our Texas University Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium Story & Inspiration:
Darrell K Royal-Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas in Austin, Texas, has been the home of the Longhorns football team since 1924. The stadium has provided a home-field advantage, with the team's home record being 375–117–10 (76.4 percent) through November 17, 2018. Before construction to build permanent south end zone seating and luxury suites, the official stadium seating capacity was 100,119, making the stadium the largest in the Big 12 Conference, the eighth largest stadium in the United States, and the ninth-largest stadium in the world.
Texas University Darrell K RoyalTexas Memorial Stadium When it opened in 1924, it was hailed as "the largest sporting facility of its sort in the Southwest," seating 27,000 people in the lower level of the current site's east and west grandstands. It was intended to be a dual-purpose stadium, with a 440-yard (400-meter) track surrounding the football field. Donations from both students and alumni helped to fund the stadium. The DKR–Texas Memorial Stadium attendance record of 103,507 was reached on September 15, 2018, when Texas hosted The University of Southern California (Texas won 37–14). Imagine how big that is!
The University of Texas officially named the stadium after legendary football coach Darrell K Royal, who enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in 1943, played at the University of Oklahoma under legendary Coach Bud Wilkinson, and led Texas to three national championships and eleven Southwest Conference titles. The stadium will be dedicated in perpetuity to the memory and honor of UT students and alumni who gave their lives in the service of the country. Every year, one home football game is designated as Veterans Recognition Day to commemorate the stadium's memorial aspect and to honor the memories of combat warriors.
