A SECOND EXPANSION? In St. Louis, Stu Durando notes the expansion of Memorial Stadium will increase capacity from 71,004 to "about 77,000." Alden said that a “second expansion planned for the southern end will be predicated on fund-raising efforts and would push seating to more than 80,000” (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 6/27). Alden said that the department built its master plan “based on a study conducted by Conventions Sports and Leisure, a nationally renowned marketing firm that has worked with the university to plan the past renovations of Mizzou Arena and the Memorial Stadium press box.” Alden: “We're very confident in our ability to generate support for our premium seating and the additional seating, based upon the study” (COLUMBIA MISSOURIAN, 6/27).
