    Amon G. Carter Stadium is located in Fort Worth Texas. It is a football stadium on the campus of Texas Christian University (TCU). It is home to the TCU Horned Frogs football team. Amon G. Carter Stadium is owned and operated by Texas Christian University. Construction began on Amon G. Carter Stadium in 1929 and was completed by October 1930. The stadium is named after a prominent Fort Worth business and generous donor, Amon G. Carter. Amon G. Carter Stadium has a couple of nicknames which are “The Carter” and “Hell’s Half-Acre” (referring to the sites wild west past). Amon G. Carter Stadium seating capacity has changed many times over the years. The original capacity was 22,000 until 1947, 30,500 (1948 to 1950), 33,000 (1950 to 1952), 37,000 (1953 to 1955), 46,083 (1956 to 1990), 44,008 (1991 to 2007), 44,358 (2008 to 2010), 32,000 (2011), and 45,000 (2012 to present). The stadium’s original playing surface was natural grass (1930-1972). In 1973 the grass was replaced with AstroTurf (1973-1991). In 1992 the AstroTurf was torn out and the surface was converted back to natural grass. In 1948 the stadium was expanded increasing capacity by 8,500. In 1951 capacity was increased by 2,500. In 1953 capacity was increased by 4,000 raising capacity to 37,000. In 1956 an upper deck was added along with a two story press box above it raising capacity to 46,083. In 1973 the natural grass playing surface was replaced with AstroTurf. In 1985 the lower bowl seats were replaced with aluminum bleachers. In 1991 the upper bowl seats were replaced with aluminum bleachers. With the 1985 and the 1991 renovations the capacity was decreased to 44,008. In 1992 the AstroTurf was replaced with natural grass. IN 2002 a new score board and video board were installed. In 2003 the stadium’s playing surface was named W.A. “Monty & Tex” Moncrief Field after W. A. “Monty” Moncrief Sr. and his son W. A. “Tex” Moncrief Jr. for their donation to the TCU football program. In 2008 luxury suites and club seats was added raising capacity to 44,358. In December 2010 reconstruction started on the west stands and on the north end zone. Work was completed prior to the 2012 season.
