Now that the Mizzou Tigers are entering their second year in the Southeastern Conference (SEC), things are more busy than ever! One of the biggest things you’ll notice when visiting Columbia this football season is the renovations currently underway at Memorial Stadium!
Here’s a list of the plans for expansion and renovation:
- East Side expansion: Addition of an upper bowl with over 5,000 general admission seats and a club level with over 1,000 club seats, as well as associated amenities including restrooms, concessions, back-of-house kitchen and club lounges. Additionally, circulation space will be added on the main concourse. Anticipated completion for the 2015 season.
- West Side press box renovation: Move the existing press functions up to level 6 and enclose. Upgrade level 5 to include new premium seating options. Update the amenities in the existing premium spaces. Anticipated completion for the 2013 season.
- North concourse: Move the Rock M and berm closer to the North end zone to provide improved game-day experience for fans, while expanding north concourse for improved spacing. Anticipated completion for the 2013 season.
- Miscellaneous structural repairs throughout stadium. Anticipated completion for the 2013 season.
As you can see, many of these improvements have already been completed in anticipation of the 2013 football season. The Rock M hill has been shifted down to create a larger concourse, the west tower renovations are complete and the towers that will support the east side bowl renovation are already going up.
These football improvements are part of an athletics overhaul that will include updates to University Field, Taylor Stadium, the Mizzou Tennis Complex and more. As always, it’s a great time to be a Tiger!
