The new and improved Memorial Stadium will make its debut Saturday. The additions include upper deck and club seating, new restrooms, concessions, lounge areas, elevators, and a new secured tailgating area called Truman’s Terrace. Capacity is now back to around 71,000, which ranks us #10 in the SEC!

Mick Deaver Drive Closure: In order to accommodate pedestrian traffic entering the east side of Memorial Stadium, Mick Deaver Dr. will be closed at Stadium Blvd. to vehicular traffic on game day. Lot B & Lot J passholders may enter via the intersection of Champions and Mick Deaver. No vehicles will be permitted to enter Mick Deaver from Stadium Blvd. Mick Deaver will re-open for outbound traffic only.

Taxi Stands: In order to ensure the safety of taxi patrons and to help alleviate traffic congestion, taxis will now be required to utilize a taxi stand on game day. The taxi stand on game days is located on Champions Drive near the Lot G entrance.

See Memorial Stadium on Gameday for other changes.


The CoMo Connect public transit system offers gameday shuttles to and from the stadium! Check out information on schedules and routes.
