Missouri executive associate athletic director Tim Hickman provided a guided tour of the Memorial Stadium east-side expansion, which he said is on budget and expected to be finished on time before the 2014 football season commences.
“It’s exciting,” Hickman said. “We number of goals in doing this project. Obviously, getting new premium seating and better amenities for our fans, those were primary, but also to add some stature and some grandeur to the stadium. I think we’ve done some of that too. It gives the stadium some more presence and overall will provide a better experience.”
Hickman said season-ticket sales have gone well — “We’ve made enough to cover our mortgage,” he joked during the tour — and that Missouri was thrilled with the project’s scope and pace.
