FaurotField.jpg As the 2008 Mizzou Football home opener approaches with this Saturday’s 6 p.m. contest against Southeast Missouri State, University of Missouri Athletic Department officials have indicated that season ticket sales for 2008 games have surpassed the 40,000 mark – shattering the previous modern-day record of 34,878 in 2004.

A limited number of season tickets remain available on the East and West sides of Memorial Stadium near the goal line, for a six-game price of $280.

Single-game ticket sales for 2008 also continue to move at a fast pace.  Reserved seating for both the Oklahoma State (Oct. 11 th ) and Colorado (Oct. 25 th ) games are sold out, with general admission hillside and temporary bleacher seating (field level and North concourse) as the only available locations remaining for those games.  A limited amount of reserved single-game tickets do remain available, however, for the other four home games, including Southeast Missouri State (Sept. 6 th ), Nevada (Sept. 13 th ), Buffalo (Sept. 20 th ) and Kansas State (Nov. 8 th ).

To order season tickets, as well as single-game tickets, you can visit the official website for Tiger Athletics, at  www.mutigers.com , or call 1-800-CAT-PAWS (884-PAWS in Columbia), or visit the MU Ticket Office in person at Mizzou Arena.
