College Football Facility Notes: Ohio State's New Scoreboard Part Of $7M Venue Upgrade
Published August 30, 2012
MUCH NEEDED SPACE: In K.C., Blair Kerkhoff wrote Missouri AD Mike Alden discussed upgrades to the facilities Tuesday at a Tiger Club booster meeting. Kerkhoff noted the upgrades, totaling $200M, “will improve facilities for football, baseball, softball, golf and tennis." Faurot Field will be “expanded to about 81,000 by 2015, but some changes will happen earlier.” Next season, the concourse in the “North end zone will be expanded, which means the rock M will be moved closer to the field.” Missouri “needs more fan space there because of an SEC rule that prohibits pass-outs during a game” (K.C. STAR, 8/29).
DEBUTING THIS WEEKEND: Indiana Univ. yesterday announced Fanfare Tickets has secured naming rights to the Stadium Club at Memorial Stadium.
