The Detroit qualifier for Red Bull Reign, a 3x3 basketball tournament where the finals are held in Chicago – with the winner’s grabbing a slot at the FIBA North American Finals. In 2014, Red Bull Reign started in the Windy City with host Anthony Davis inviting 32 teams from around the city to see which team would reign on the court. On August 22, 16 teams will head to Chicago’s Seward Park for the Red Bull Reign finals to face off against each other in hopes of going to the FIBA North America Finals.
Endurance is the name of the game: it’s not just one round – teams must go multiple rounds if they want to rule the court of victory. 24 teams will be selected from the pool of registrants. Round 1 and 2 games will be pool-play and each game will last eight minutes. The final round will be a bracketed tournament and will run 10-minute games, with the winning team earning their spot in the Red Bull Reign Finals in Chicago. The winning team from the qualifier must have the same roster to participate in the Chicago finals. The qualifier is open to amateur and pros alike, however players must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
Twenty-four of Detroit’s most talented 3x3 basketball squads fighting tooth and nail to earn a spot to compete in the Finals in Chicago. Only the top team from Detroit will advance. For info on competing, players should visit www.redbull.com/reign.
