The stadium scoreboard measures at 81 feet tall and 136 feet wide. At the time of its creation, it was called the largest high-definition video screen in the world, though it was quickly surpassed by a larger screen in Tokyo. It is the largest high-definition video screen in college football.

    History

    The stadium opened in 1924 with a natural grass playing surface that switched to artificial turf in 1969. The stadium returned to natural grass from 1996-2008 before adding the popular FieldTurf surface in 2009. The stadium cost only $275,000 to build but has undergone millions of dollars worth of renovations in recent years to help expand seating and modernize the stadium. The University of Texas honored legendary football coach Darrell K Royal, who enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in 1943, and who led Texas to three national championships and eleven Southwest Conference titles, by officially naming the stadium after him in 1996. Additionally, the University established the Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium Veterans Committee, composed of alumni who served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam or the Gulf Wars. The committee is charged to forever dedicate the stadium in the memory of, and in honor of, UT students and alumni who gave their lives for their country. Each year, one home football game is designated as Veterans Recognition Day, commemorating the memorial aspect of the stadium and to honor the memory of war soldiers.
