CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Xavier University will host its annual Skyline Chili Musketeer Madness on Friday, October 25 at Cintas Center. Musketeer Madness is the tip-off event for fans as the men's and women's basketball teams gear up for the 2013-14 season, Xavier's inaugural season in the Big East Conference. 

The event is free to the public and features a Fan Fest on the plaza in front of Cintas Center starting at 5:30 p.m. Activities include inflatable games for kids, corn hole, and much more! 

The event will continue inside Cintas Center at 7:00 p.m. as both basketball teams will be introduced and be followed by skills competitions and conclude with an intra-squad scrimmage for both teams. The Xavier pep band and cheerleaders will also be on hand to help kick off the season during family weekend for Xavier University.

As part of this year's Madness, organizers are inviting fans to design the t-shirt that will be distributed to the first 1,500 fans ages 17 & over.  Your design must include the Skyline Chili Musketeer Madness logo and your unique "Big East Tip-Off Party" creative design.  The t-shirt can have up to two imprint locations (front, back and sleeve).  Visit http://www.goxavier.com/ot/tshirt-contest.html for official contest rules and submit your design by October 11th to athmktg@xavier.edu.

Floor seating will be available exclusively to the first 500 Xavier students to reserve their seat by picking up a ticket at the Cintas Center event ticket window at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, October 14.
