Mizzou Football Sets Fan Appreciation Day for August 9


Players and coaches available for autographs on Faurot Field


COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Mizzou Department of Athletics will hold its 13th annual Football Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 9, at Faurot Field/Memorial Stadium. Gates will open to the public at approximately 3:15 p.m., and the team and coaches will be on hand to sign autographs until 4:45 p.m. Admission to this fan favorite event is free.

At Fan Day, Mizzou’s followers will have the opportunity to go onto the field and meet Tiger players and coaches and get autographs. Players will be limited to signing one item per fan, with free schedule posters available on the field for those interested. Guests bringing multiple items to the gate will be asked to return additional items to their vehicle.

Fans should enter the stadium via Gates 1 or 2W beginning at 3:15 p.m. Those with disabilities should enter through Lot G and park in the area south of the stadium and enter through the southwest field level gate. There will be free water on hand at field level, but fans are encouraged to bring their own sealed bottled water to help beat the potential heat as well. Other outside food and beverages will not be permitted.

Parking for the event is free, and fans are encouraged to park in the lots to the west and south of Memorial Stadium (Founder’s Lot A, Lot C, Lot D and Lot G).

Fans looking to get the latest Mizzou Football team gear are invited to check out the Tiger Team Store, which will be open August 9 from 2:30-5:30 p.m.
