For the 26th consecutive year, the University of Missouri Athletic Department is working through Missouri Press to arrange a “football-tickets-for-advertising trade-out.”  

Mizzou’s Athletic Department is offering MPA newspapers an allotment of tickets for the season-opening home game with the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Saturday, Sept. 10.  Game time is 6:30 p.m. 

You may use these tickets for your newspaper family, for your advertisers, for promotions, etc. 

The program, which is strictly voluntary, involves the publishing of Mizzou athletic display advertising in your newspaper(s) in return for a similar value of tickets (minimum of 6 tickets and a maximum of 20 tickets per publication) to the September 10 game.

Ticket Details: The Mizzou Athletic Department, through Missouri Press, provides each participating newspaper a minimum of 6, maximum of 20, reserved seat tickets to the Mizzou-Eastern Michigan game at a maximum total value of $45 per ticket (total maximum value of $900).  These tickets will be outside the 20-yard line in the best available special Missouri Press section.  In return, participating newspapers provide Mizzou athletics up to a total of $900 in advertising.  The total minimum is 6 tickets and total maximum is 20 per publication. This is a first come, first served opportunity. The number of tickets you request, multiplied by $45, will determine your level of commitment. Ad placement will come through Missouri Press.  It is expected the ad schedule will run at different intervals between August and December.

If you want to participate in the ticket-advertising trade-out, contact Missouri Press by phone, 573-449-4167, or email,, no later than August 19, 2016.
