We are happy to welcome the visiting teams to Fayetteville and to Bulldog Arena, and we do anticipate large crowds during the tournament.

Parking laws will be enforced during the tournament, and we hope the following guidelines will help patrons avoid any parking problems:

  • The west parking lot at the corner of Garland and MLK Blvd. (directly in front of the arena) will be reserved parking by permit only throughout the state tournament. General parking will be available in the east parking lot on MLK Blvd. (directly in front of the Performing Arts Center).
  • The University of Arkansas has agreed to allow free parking in Lot 56 (just west of the Razorback Soccer field on MLK Blvd.) during the tournament. The National Guard will be providing golf cart transportation for those attendees in need of special assistance.
  • Parking is also available in the student lots on Bulldog Blvd. (north of the FHS campus by Harmon Field).
  • Parking will not be allowed in unauthorized spaces, such as fire lanes, entrance lanes to parking lots, areas designated as no parking, or on the grass. The police have informed us that vehicles parked illegally will be ticketed and towed. Emergency vehicles must be able to access the parking lots.
  • Fayetteville High School will dismiss at 2 pm on Wednesday, February 27 and Thursday, February 28 and at 3 pm on Friday, March 2 to help provide more parking.
  • Parking lot attendants will be stationed in the two front parking lots to provide directions and assistance.
