Step inside Mizzou football’s new south end zone project
Missouri is giving fans (and likely recruits) a sneak peek of the football program's new facility in the south end zone of Memorial Stadium.
The athletic department posted a video Wednesday that's a virtual tour of the finished product, which is on pace to be ready for the 2019 season. Construction broke ground in March.
Some highlights of the new facility: a state-of-the-art locker room, a seating area that allows fans to watch the team run onto Faurot Field, and premium club seating that overlooks the stadium. Missouri's current football locker room is across from the stadium in the Missouri Athletic Training Complex. When completed, the football program is expected to move out of the MATC.
The Bunker Club, which allows fans to greet the team as it takes the field, has drawn comparisons to the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which has a similar feature that other NFL teams later adapted. Missouri played at AT&T Stadium in 2014 against Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl.
Mizzou's south end zone facility will also feature a weight room and a 60-person hydrotherapy pool.
