KANSAS CITY, MO. The University of Missouri Tigers will have “masses of capacity” at Faurot Field for the fall 2021 football season
Mizzou Athletics announced the decision on Wednesday evening.
“We look forward to cheering on the tigers safely and offering the fans an outstanding experience that reflects all the pageants and traditions of a game day in Colombia,” the statement said. “As preparations for the 2021 season continue, we plan to have an ongoing dialogue with the university’s medical experts and public health officials to ensure safe gaming experiences for all.”
It was difficult at times to get onto the field last season due to cancellations or postponed games due to positive COVID-19 tests and quarantines related to virus exposure throughout the Southeastern Conference.
Attendance was also capped at 25%, and in September the athletics department banned tailgating in parking lots and campus spaces on matchday to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Student athletes are now adhering to the new COVID-19 security protocols announced by the SEC in August.
The Tigers will have seven home games in 2021.
