Showdown for Relief will be available via pay-per-view, all proceeds will be donated

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Showdown for Relief, Mizzou Men's Basketball's sold out charity exhibition game against Kansas on Oct. 22, will be televised via pay-per view .

The cost to watch the game will be $40 and fans are encouraged to subscribe as soon as possible. 

As with the tickets to the game, all revenue derived from the telecast will go to aid the victims of the recent natural disasters in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

SIDEARM Sports, the official website provider for both schools' athletic departments has arranged the platform for the telecast and is waiving all fees to ensure that all revenue raised is directed to relief efforts. 

"Our first objective was to sell out Sprint Center," the two schools said jointly in a release. "Once we achieved the sellout so quickly, our fans who could not get tickets expressed tremendous interest in having the game televised. We wanted to make sure that the charities we've identified would be the only entities to derive revenue from this game. SIDEARM Sports has provided the platform to allow us to create a second stream of revenue via this telecast." 

Veteran Kansas City broadcaster Leif Lisec will do play-by-play. 

Fran Fraschilla and Holly Rowe will serve as the broadcasts' analyst and sideline reporter, respectively.
