Faurot Field at Memorial StadiumMizzou Tigers

600 East Stadium Blvd., Columbia , MO, 65211
    Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium is located in Columbia Missouri. It is an outdoor football stadium found on the campus of the University of Missouri. It is home field for the Missouri Tigers (better known as Mizzou Tigers) football team. In 1972 Memorial Stadium’s playing field in honor of longtime coach Don Faurot, was named Faurot Field giving the complex the formal name of Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium. The stadium is also referred to as “The Zou”. The stadium is the typical horseshoe shaped. The horseshoe has a grass berm in the curved end that is used for day of game general admission seating. The berm is famous for “M” made up of rocks from the stadiums construction by the freshman class. In 1927, the “M” made its debut in the northern end zone. Additional seating could be added to the “open” end of the horseshoe. In the mid-1990s the track that circled the field was removed and is now a road that runs between the field and the stands. Fundraising began in 1921 for two projects on campus, one being for “Memorial Stadium”. The name of the stadium is in honor of alumni that lost their lives in WWI. Construction began in December 1925 and was completed in just under a year in October 1926. It was built with 25,000 seating capacity (the lower half of the current stadium) with a track circling the field. Seating expansions have taken place throughout the stadiums history. In 1994 a second tier of seating was constructed above the original 1926 construction. Seats were added between the 30 yard lines on the west side and between the south 30 yard line and the north 40 yard line. In 1961 another project filled in the northeast and northwest sections of the second tier. With two more projects, one in 1963 and in 1965 the second tier was enclosed with 10,800 permanent seats which brought the permanent seating capacity to around 62,023. In 2012 and 2013, 6,000 more seats were added bringing the capacity to around 67,124. In 2014 plans are to add 5,200 general admission seats and 800 club seats. Faurot Field originated as a grass playing surface. In 1985 it was resurfaced with Omniturf but switch back to natural grass in 1995. In 2003 the field was replaced with Fieldturf and is still currently being used. In 1996 four permanent light towers were installed allowing Missouri to play regular night games. Previous night games were only played under temporary lights paid for by the television broadcasters. In 1997 a renovation brought the installation of a DiamondVision video board at the north end zone. The concourses were also refurbished, concessions were expanded and new ticket booths were constructed. In 1999 the stadium received a new 15 story press box, several executive suites, luxury suites and hundreds of premium club seats and a restaurant. In 2005 the south end scoreboard was replaced with a high definition video display and in 2009 the north end scoreboard was replaced with updated video capabilities and a new sound system.
