In the late 1920s, Fort Worth businessman Amon G. Carter took the lead on a campaign for a new football stadium for the TCU Horned Frogs. With the sale of $350,000 worth of mortgage bonds funding it, the new stadium was completed by 1930. The first game at the stadium, named for Carter, took place on October 11, 1930, when the Horned Frogs defeated Arkansas 40-0. When it first opened, the stadium had a seating capacity of 22,000. This has been expanded several times through the years. In 1948 through 1951, an expansion project brought the capacity to 33,000. In 1953, this was expanded to 37,000. Another renovation project in 1956 brought this total to over 46,000, where it remained until 1991. That year, the capacity was decreased to 44,000 as new seating was installed. Another round of renovations began in 1996 with an $11 million expansion of the locker room and training facilities. In 2002, a new scoreboard was installed and a new $7.5 million athletic center was dedicated. Most recently, the stadium underwent a $13 million renovation and addition of luxury suites that brought the seating capacity to its current total of 44,358. In August 2010, TCU announced plans for a $105 million expansion and renovation to begin in early 2011. In 2003, the playing surface at the stadium was renamed Moncrief Field to honor donor W.A. "Monty & Tex" Moncrief. The stadium has been the host of the NCAA's Armed Forces Bowl since 2003.
