There’s Only “One Mizzou” The very mention of the word “Mizzou” evokes a sense of tradition and work ethic embodied by one set of core values. These values include academic integrity, social responsibility and competitive excellence. The essence of these ethics is carried into competition with the time-honored tradition of the pre-game motivational message. This ritual is delivered in the locker room prior to facing your opponent and in the sweetest of victory speeches following a win. Be a part of the “Team Behind the Team” even after you’ve earned your letter by leaving a lasting legacy for the elite athletes attending Mizzou. Furthermore, consider leaving a legacy in honor of a family member or friend who wore the black and gold. Lock in your sponsorship of a locker, where you have the ability to impart something special to the next generation.

Mizzou Sports Park
You Are The Key One key component to the success of Mizzou student-athletes and enjoyment of fans is the availability of modern athletics facilities. Competing at the highest level demands continual construction and renovations to the Sports Park. Mizzou has aggressively expanded its Sports Park while targeting several areas to create “Champions For Life” on and off the playing field. This pursuit of excellence has resulted in the renovation of the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex where locker rooms for baseball, softball, soccer and football were expanded and/or brought online. Furthermore, the construction of Mizzou Arena provided much needed improvements for both men’s and women’s basketball, including first-class player lounges and locker rooms. A state-ofthe-art Golden Girls and Gymnastics Training Facility located south of Memorial Stadium will provide these teams a proper place to call home. Finally, the golf teams have relocated their home to The Club at Old Hawthorne, where plans to construct a new practice facility, including locker rooms, is well underway. Now you have a chance to join the “Team Behind the Team.” By making a contribution, you are helping Mizzou remain a force in collegiate athletics for years to come.
