Gameday at Faurot Field
The ZOU. Faurot Field. Memorial Stadium. It may have many names, but it represents the one and only Mizzou. The ZOU houses a massive student and community-driven fan base that turns out in impressive numbers. The home advantage our Mizzou Tigers enjoy is because of intense fan support. Players who wear black and gold love it. The ones who don’t fear it.
Tradition is a quality of the elite. Tradition shows consistency, integrity to never quit, and reverence for a system and its supporters. Since 1926, The ZOU has represented this commitment to tradition. The traditions that make The ZOU special, however, go far beyond football—they unite the university and the community as a whole.
Mizzou Football honors the consistency, integrity, and reverence of its traditions. From painting the Rock M every fall to hearing the cannon boom after every score, there are certain things you can count on when you’re in The ZOU.

The New and Improved ZOU
The ZOU underwent a $45.5 million renovation and expansion during the 2014 off-season. The expansion added 4,100 upper deck seats, as well as 1,200 premium seats in the new loge boxes and 23,000-square-foot club level. The renovations also included an expanded concourse, new restroom and concession areas, a new ticket office, new entry points, and upgraded field lighting.
The renovated ZOU also features Truman’s Terrace, a brand-new tailgating area for Mizzou fans. Truman’s Terrace offers an outdoor tailgating experience, complete with food, live entertainment, and appearances by Truman the Tiger, the Golden Girls, and Marching Mizzou.
