FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Due to the Walmart Shareholders Meeting at Bud Walton Arena on Friday and the capacity crowds expected, fans attending this weekend’s NCAA Fayetteville Regional (June 1-4) are strongly encouraged to take advantage of a FREE Transportation Roundtrip Shuttle Service to Baum Stadium.

Public Parking will be extremely limited near the stadium for the NCAA Regional and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis in the Baum East and the KeyTronics GRASS (Beechwood Avenue – northwest of Baum Stadium) lots.

Additional parking will be available in Lot 56 located on the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Razorback Road. From Lot 56, fans can utilize the FREE fan shuttle service picking up in the Southeast corner of Lot 56 (near Razorback Soccer Field). Fans will be dropped off curbside at Baum Stadium.

Razorback Foundation members who have a designated 2018 baseball parking pass may use their pass(es) to park in the same lots they used during the regular season.

The free shuttle service will start two hours prior to the first pitch of the first game and will run throughout the second game and post-game, picking up behind the home plate plaza.

Due to the limited space and anticipated capacity crowds, fans are encouraged to carpool and to arrive early.
