The University of Missouri Board of Curators has approved a $200 million athletic facility master plan. The program was jump-started by a $30 million private gift from the Kansas City Sports Trust, which many of us in eastern Missouri know little or nothing about.

This plan is significant for several reasons. The $30 million gift has been identified as the second largest in the history of the university. It also makes a statement to the Southeastern Conference and to others that Missouri is serious in being a major player in the SEC. For recruiting, by adding expanded and new facilities, it is a big plus. For Tiger supporters who attend the athletic contests, it will mean improvements that will benefit them. The plan also will add to the spirit of the university’s students, graduates and other supporters and fans.
