Catch the Tiger Spirit!

Mizzou basketball provides a lot of excitement around campus. Our fans were quite proud as they defeated our arch-rival, Kansas, 62-60 earlier this month. After the game winning shot in the final seconds, fans stormed the court to celebrate the upset, the win against our rival and keeping an undefeated record in Mizzou Arena this season. The team looks to make their first appearance in NCAA March Madness tournament in three years.

And although basketball is on every Tiger’s mind right now, who can forget the last two football seasons? We made it to two great bowl games and were in several prime time games! Chase Daniel was a preliminary Heisman candidate!

  • With all the excitement surrounding Mizzou sports this school year, you might be wondering how you can be a part of it all next year. Depending on what sports you want to buy tickets for, there are a couple different options. Although the ticket office has yet to decide what packages will be available for the 2009-2010 school year, here are a few things to think about when picking your package.
  • What games do you really want to attend? If you are only a die hard football fan, pick the football package. The same goes for basketball. That way you don’t pay extra for games that you won’t attend.
  • There will not be block seating at football games next year. All students seats with be first-come first-serve. So if you want to sit close to the field, get there early!
  • Do you want to be with the loudest and most passionate Mizzou fans in the crowd? Join Tiger’s Lair (for football fans) and Zou Crew (for basketball fans)! These groups get great seats, t-shirts and opportunities to attend bus trips to big away games.

Information regarding ticket packages, Tiger’s Lair and Zou Crew will be available at Summer Welcome.

Be sure to keep following Mizzou cheer on the team against the Jayhawks on March 1 in Lawrence. The final home game is scheduled against the University of Oklahoma on Wednesday, March 4.
