Beginning this year, public season tickets will increase to $379 from $319 in 2011. Tickets for individual games will cost more for everyone excluding MU students and faculty.
The days of halftime tailgating are over — at least if you plan to watch the whole game. Because of a long-standing Southeastern Conference rule, fans cannot re-enter the stadium if they leave during the game. Don’t expect alcohol sales at Faurot Field, either. There’s still a ban on that, too.
The Touchdown Terrace seating at the south end zone will be enlarged for the upcoming season, and the number of donor seats will also increase. Marching Mizzou moves to the southeast corner of the student section, which allows student seating to expand into the upper levels. About 2,200 more seats will be added to the visiting team’s section.
The Faurot Field artificial turf was replaced this summer, and several features were added. The tiger logo in the middle of the field is larger, and SEC logos now appear at the 25-yard lines. The diamonds in the end zones now read “Mizzou” instead of “Missouri.”
White and a dark gray color called anthracite will be added to the classic Missouri black-and-gold scheme. The Missouri athletic typeface has also been revamped to mimic tiger ears. The new football jerseys, which are part of the Nike Pro Combat system, will repel sweat and keep players cool.
