Mizzou Fan Day set for August 4

From the University of Missouri

The Mizzou Department of Athletics will hold its 11th annual Football Fan Day on Sunday, August 4th, at Faurot Field/Memorial Stadium.  Gates will open at 3:45 p.m., and the team and coaches will be on hand to sign autographs until 5:15 p.m.  Admission to the fan-friendly event is free.

Tiger fans will have the opportunity to go onto the field and meet Tiger players and coaches and get autographs. Players will be able to sign one item per fan and free schedule posters will also be available at the event. Entry for the event will be different than previous years due to construction to Memorial Stadium. Fans should enter via Gate 3W or the Southwest field level gate beginning at 3:45 p.m. There will be free water on hand, but fans are encouraged to bring their own sealed bottle of water to help beat the heat as well. Other outside food and beverage will not be permitted.

Tiger fans that are still looking to purchase season tickets for the 2013 Mizzou Football season will have the opportunity to take a firsthand look at some available seating options and reserve their season ticket. Select giveaway items will be available for new season ticket holders who purchase season tickets at Fan Day. Fans can visit the season ticket sales tent which will be located on the west sideline for more information.

Parking for the event will be 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). Those entering Lot G to park must do so from its entrance at Champions Drive.

Fans looking to get the latest Mizzou Football team gear are invited to check out the Tiger Team Store, which will be open that day from 3-6 p.m.
