Fred G. Hughes Stadium is part of the Robert W. Plaster Sports Complex on the campus of Missouri Southern.
As a result of generous contributions of more than $800,000 from the community, Missouri Southern's effort to replace the artificial football playing surface and the running track at Fred G. Hughes Stadium became a reality in April 2003. The support allowed the University to make lighting improvements as well. In late March of 2003, the Board of Regents approved awarding the contract to Sprinturf for the replacement of the artificial turf. In April, the Board then approved awarding a contract to Beynon Sports Surfaces for a new track. Sprinturf installed an artificial surface with a ground rubber infill. Beynon installed a full-pore track surface for the track. Missouri Southern's indoor track in the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center is a Beynon product.
