Since 1926, it’s served as the home stadium of the Missouri Tigers football team and is also used to host other sports and entertainment events. The venue is perhaps best known for the giant “M” formed by whitewashed rocks in the north end zone. After many renovations and expansions, Faurot Field currently has a capacity of over 61,000 fans for Missouri football games.
