Tour through the brand new Memorial Stadium south endzone facility
Mizzou Football’s brand new South Endzone facility at Memorial Stadium is now 450+ days away from completion. While the construction crews are busy building the future home of Mizzou Football, MUTigers.com has put together a brand new, exclusive fly-through rendering of the new facility, which will open prior to the 2019 season.
In this amazing fly-through video, the voice of the Tigers, Mike Kelly, takes fans on a guided tour of never-before-seen renderings of the brand new facility. See where the Tigers will practice, train and live in the video above, simply click on the image to watch the video.
The Tigers’ new football operations area will include team and staff locker rooms, an enhanced sports medicine facility featuring a Hydrotherapy area with recovery pools, Hyroworx and lap pools, a weight room, nutrition oasis and equipment room, as well as team and position meeting rooms, and coaches offices. A grand lobby entrance at field level showcasing Mizzou’s proud football tradition will greet visitors, and a recruiting lounge will allow the Tigers’ staff to host recruits.
When the new south end zone comes on-line at Faurot Field in 2019, it will feature sixteen suites, a 750-person field-level club similar to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a 1,254-seat indoor club area with food service and restrooms, and general seating for 1,324 approximately fans. A new concourse will not only link the stadium’s East and West stadium areas, but provide new restrooms and concessions for all fans to enjoy. A full kitchen will also be constructed in the facility to service the new premium areas, and new video boards will further enhance the Mizzou game-day experience.
Other features of the new facility include a roof-top video deck and two-bay loading dock. A new road connecting the west side to the south will also be built.

The football program, which has been housed at the Missouri Athletics Training Center (MATC) since the 1980’s and out-grown that building, will move its entire operation to the south end zone facility, which in turn allows for that space to be repurposed to better serve the needs of all Mizzou student-athletes and athletics staff. In addition to currently housing Mizzou’s entire football operation, the MATC is also home to the department’s student-athlete academic support unit, primary weight room and dining facility, as well as offices and locker rooms for the Tigers’ highly-successful women’s soccer, softball and track & field programs.
Over the nearly two-year construction process, the project itself, when combined with Mizzou Athletics’ annual economic influence, could provide as much as US$700m in regional economic impact. According to CS&L (Convention, Sports and Leisure, a consultant firm working with Mizzou Athletics), as many as 1,200 new jobs will be created because of the project, which could result in as much as $44 million in new salaries to the Mid-Missouri economy.
The architect for the project is Kansas City, Missouri-based Populous, which has three of the nation’s newest college football stadiums, as well as SunTrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves, and Yankee Stadium, in its world-renowned design portfolio. The M.A. Mortenson Company, headquartered in Minneapolis, will serve as the project’s construction manager. The construction of the Braves’ SunTrust Park, as well as the Golden State Warriors new arena, Chase Center, and the University of Minnesota’s new athlete’s village, are just some of Mortenson’s nationally-recognised work.
