Alden: Memorial Stadium’s south end zone upgrade becomes priority

As Missouri football grows its footprint in the SEC, Memorial Stadium will continue to grow.

Missouri athletic director Mike Alden, in a one-on-one interview with ABC 17 Sports Director Austin Kim, said renovating Memorial Stadium’s south endzone will become a top project for Mizzou Athletics in the near-future. Alden added the new indoor football facility will be put on hold while MU administrators focus on designing and building up Memorial Stadium’s south end zone.

Mizzou just completed a $45.5 million expansion of the stadium’s east side this August. The 4,100 upper deck seats and 1,200 premium suits in the east side bumped Mizzou back to its original 71,000 seat capacity.

Alden said he did not know how many seats the south end zone expansion would add at this time. He also did not offer a firm time table for completed renovations. Alden did say the plans include a new weight room, new locker room and football offices.

The Missouri athletic director also said Mizzou softball’s new stadium plans, scheduled to open in 2017, will not be affected.

Mizzou Athletics is in the midst of a 10-year, $200 million master plan to upgrade its facilities.
