Ticket prices set for 'One State, One Spirit Classic'

Ticket prices for the “One State, One Spirit Classic” presented by Leggett & Platt, Inc., have been announced.

Missouri Southern and the Missouri Tigers will play a men’s basketball exhibition game on Sunday, Oct. 30, at Missouri Southern’s Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. All proceeds from the game will be given to support tornado relief effort in Joplin.

Ticket prices are $20 for reserved chairback seats and $12 for general admission seating. Missouri Southern student tickets will also be $12.

All tickets will be sold through the MSSU ticket office, which is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Tickets can also be purchased by calling the ticket office, 417-625-9366.

Missouri Southern Lionbacker Booster Club members and basketball season ticket holders for the 2011-12 school year can purchase tickets starting on Aug. 1. They have one week to purchase their seat before tickets go on sale to the general public on Aug. 8.

MSSU students can purchase their tickets in the student section beginning on Aug. 22, the first day of classes.

“Virtual tickets” for fans unable to attend the game but wanting to be a part of the event will be sold. Those commemorative tickets are $10 and will be sent in the mail.

The game’s starting time has yet to be determined as talks continue concerning a possible television broadcast.

There will be a moment of silence at 5:41 p.m. — the time the tornado struck Joplin on May 22.

Additional information about events surrounding the game — including online auctions and a free basketball clinic for kids — will be announced later.
