Mizzou Unveils Stadium Upgrade Plans

In June, the University of Missouri — which goes by MU instead of UM for some reason — announced that it would spend $200 million to improve its athletic facilities as part of its move to the SEC.  One of the first projects scheduled for completion is a renovation of Memorial Stadium’s east side.  The school plans to add 5,000 bleacher seats as well as 1,200 premium seats.

Renderings of the new exterior have now been made public:
















The school will also convert some media areas on the west side of the stadium into club/luxury suites.  The west side work should be completed by August.  The east side project is expected to be ready in time for the 2014 football season, on year sooner than originally planned.



The reason for the MU/UM thing has nothing to do with the Big 8: the entire University system, which includes Mizzou, University of Missouri-St. Louis, and University of Missouri-Kansas City, is known collectively as the "University of Missouri" system. Mizzou is the flagship, but it's actually known as Missouri University. That's the distinction between the entire system and the flagship campus.


Make a stupid statement then act like you already know the rhetorical answer. Next you'll post how you've previously reported this. Geesh, I've never seen such an ego from a hack.

I knew that all the Big 8 schools put the U at the end of their abbreviations, but I'd never heard that it was a league mandate.  Just a silly little aside.  Many thanks for the explanations here (and in our inbox).


Thanks for reading the site,



All the old Big Eight schools used the initial of their state first: MU, KU, OU, CU, NU, etc. Back in the early part of the 1900s, our university was commonly known as Missouri University, and Kansas University and the others were similarly known. So it became MU. The moniker has stuck even though today the formal name is University of Missouri.


OK, some history. Originally, the University of Missouri was referred to as UM. However, the Big 8 Conference decided to institute a rule whereby all members would have the "U" at the end of the abbreviation for consistency. At that time, the University of Missouri became MU. The Big 8 all had the "U" at the end --- KU, KSU, CU, ISU, OU, OSU, NU, and MU. So, same as the University of Oklahoma is known as OU.


current capcity 71,004 for a total of 77,204 seating stadium good for Mizzou


@JamesKeith This is just the 1st two phases. The south end zone has been discussed as the next step and that will add considerably more seating.


 @JamesKeith I like the look. 77,000 is a good size fohow ofr a stadium, and in today's economic environment, its a statement of confidence.
