Red Bull King of the Rock
Red Bull King of the Rock is a bit bigger this year with the top 64 streetballers from 25 different countries battling for the title of "King". It’s a fierce event with a head-to-head competition where a streetballer will challenge another for bagging $ 20,000, prize money. It will be a thrilling experience to watch cutthroat competition amongst contenders.
The event is highly competitive – it’s a win or goes home situation. The rules and scoring will be the same as regular hoops, shots will either count as 2 or 3 points and five fouls is an automatic loss. The players will have to face four intense half-court games one after another. Each player has his own referee, court manager and scoreboard. All winners have to proceed onto the next court to face another challenger. To battle for the title continuously, players must possess excellent stamina.
The final 3 participants in each qualifier will be chosen to play in the UAE finals. Depending on rules, Red Bull staff members can also pick other good players to participate in the finals being held on June 15th, 2012 at Al Jafliah Community 1/Satwa.
Make sure to book flights to Dubai and avail hotels in Dubai before it’s too late to reach there.
