Amon G. Carter Stadium - {CATEGORY}

Amon G. Carter Stadium is an open-air football stadium on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. It is the home stadium of the TCU football team, the Horned Frogs. It also hosts the annual Armed Forces Bowl, which has been played since 2003. It was named after Amon G. Carter, a prominent Fort Worth businessman, newspaper publisher, and city booster. The stadium is currently under a $175 million renovation-project spanning five years. The stadium was opened in 1930, with a seating capacity of 22,000. It was built to replace Clark Field. Dedication of the stadium was on October 11, 1930. TCU defeated the University of Arkansas, 40-0. Several different expansions of stadium's end zone and east grand stands took place in the 1940s and 1950s. The first of which took place in 1948, with construction raising the capacity by 8,500 to 30,500. In 1951 and 1953, 2,500 and 4,000 more seats were added to the sections giving the facility 37,000 seats. A two-level press box was added to the structure in 1956. The same year the press box was added, an upper deck was added that features a giant 60 ft. x 120 ft. display of the school's logo, the curved purple & white "TCU". The letters are displayed on bleacher seats and clearly visible when flying into DFW airport. The upper deck brought the stad ium capacity to 46,083. Improvements were made to the seating in 1985 and 1991. First the seats in the lower grandstands were removed and aluminum seats were put in their place. Then the upper-deck seats were replaced with the aluminum seats. In 1992, the artificial turf, which had been in place since 1973, was replaced with natural grass. Today, with seating modifications and removals, the stadium seats 44,008 spectators. In 2002, the David E. Bloxom Sr. Foundation helped install a new scoreboard and videoboard. In addition, TCU recently completed its expansion of the John Justin Athletic Center, which is attached to the stadium complex. Bids are under review to 3/4-bowl the stadium; some estimate this would bring the stadium to a seating capacity of nearly 50,000.
