    Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas is the home stadium of the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs football team of the Big 12 Conference. It was named after Amon G. Carter, a prominent Fort Worth businessman, newspaper publisher, and city booster. It has several popular nicknames, the most popular being "The Carter" and "Hell's Half Acre" (a reference to the site in Fort Worth's wild west past, which was located near the stadium, as well as the difficulty opposing teams have winning in the stadium). Official seating capacity is 45,000.

    History

    Amon G. Carter Stadium was constructed from 1929 to 1930 with an original seating capacity of 22,000. The stadium hosted its first football game on October 11, 1930, when TCU defeated the University of Arkansas. In August 2010, TCU announced a $105 million reconstruction of the west side and north end zone of Amon G. Carter Stadium to better enhance football fans' experience and upgrade amenities. Athletic officials envisioned transforming the historic Fort Worth icon into the "Camden Yards" of collegiate football stadiums. Work on the reconstruction, which is funded completely by donor support, began with the implosion of the west stands on December 5, 2010. It was fully completed in 2012 and cost a total of $164 million. The Armed Forces Bowl, previously the Fort Worth Bowl, has been played annually at Amon Carter Stadium since 2003. The bowl game was temporarily moved, however, to SMU's Gerald Ford Stadium in Dallas for the 2010 and 2011 bowl seasons due to the reconstruction. An earlier bowl game, the Fort Worth Classic, was played in Fort Worth at the predecessor to Amon Carter Stadium in 1921.
