History of Mizzou Arena
Opening in 2004, the Mizzou Arena got off to
an exciting start with the local community, and from there it was on from year to year and sports season to sports season.
From a somewhat modest start at Mizzou Arena, the Tigers have steadily grown in stature since the 2004-2005 season and these
days are one of the most formidable teams in the SEC, a conference routinely considered the best athletic conference in all
of sports. With a little help from the Tigers, Mizzou Arena has become one of the very best places to be for anyone looking
for a top-tier live sporting event, which is why it's always a good idea to keep an eye on the schedule so you can see what
amazing matchup is coming up next.
Playing in the SEC, one of the top conferences in the
country, the Tigers are always in the middle of one intense scrape or another, though they've also put together plenty of
winning seasons over the years. It really all got started back in 1918, the year they won their first conference championship.
They would add plenty more titles to that one over the years since, and in recent years they've become regular fixtures in
the SEC championship game and even in the year-end NCAA Tournament. Their crowning achievement, as far as the Tournament is
concerned, is making the Elite Eight a handful of times, including in 2002 and 2009.
And ever since 2004, all of the
home games during the regular season have gone down at Mizzou Arena. With the switch to the SEC in the 2012-2013 season, the
intensity and passion has actually only increased, setting up some unbelievable rivalries with some of the most prominent
athletic programs in the entire nation. Once you're there in the stands, you'll understand that this is an arena that is going
to have plenty of great games in a very bright future.
The Spectator Experience
There's nothing like
being in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, brush off the potato chips and get ready to see a game
you won't soon forget. College basketball has plenty of great games on the schedule each and every season, from plenty of
top-tier regular season battles to Tournament clashes that you'll have to see first-hand to believe. These are some of the
best amateur athletes in the entire world, though that's something that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate.
Will you be there when your favorite player pulls up for a game-winning three that will have everyone jumping out of their
seat in unison?
