Athletics receives $30 million donation
MU Athletics received a gift of $30 million from the Kansas City Sports Trust to help toward the $200 million master plan renovation of Mizzou sports facilities, including upgrades to Memorial Stadium, officials announced June 26.
The gift is the second largest single donation in Mizzou history, Athletic Director Mike Alden said at a news conference. The first phase of construction will include an increase in Memorial Stadium’s seating capacity and add more restrooms, concessions and lounge areas.
“This historic gift is putting into motion a series of improvements that will impact Mizzou Athletics for generations to come,” Alden said.
