Tickets for those games and five more games will be available Thursday night at MUTigers.com and beginning Friday can be purchased by calling 1-800-CAT-PAWS or at Mizzou Arena.
Exhibition games tickets start at only $5, while tickets to nonconference action are priced as low as $10.
Pricing and on-sale dates for the UCLA game and Missouri’s slate of Southeastern Conference games, including a visit from top-ranked Kentucky (Feb. 1), will be announced at a later date.
Season tickets also remain available via the request list, which fans can sign up for at MUTigers.com/buytickets, and are the only way to guarantee seats for every home game, including showdowns with Arkansas (Feb. 13) and Tennessee (Feb. 15).
Of course, the season gets underway Friday when Missouri hosts Oklahoma City in its exhibition opener at the Hearnes Center.
“The Return to Hearnes” tips off at 7 p.m. and features special recognition for the 1993-94 Tigers team that finished unbeaten in Big Eight play.
Parking and admission for the exhibition at the Hearnes Center is free. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., but once the allotment of 13,000 commemorative tickets that will handed out at the door are gone no more fans will be admitted.
Fans seeking autographs from 1993-94 team members should enter through the southwest doors, which are located nearest the four-way stop at the corner of Champions and Mick Deaver Drives. The autograph session ends at 6:30 p.m.
The Hearnes Center’s east and west entrances also will be open. The north entrance will be reserved for current students.
Commemorative programs will be available for $5 with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Coaches vs. Cancer, a charity co-founded by Missouri legend Norm Stewart. There will also be commemorative T-shirts for sale.
