In June 2016, Ball Up makes its debut in Australia with an arena tour that includes Perth Arena on Saturday 11 June 2016.
Ball Up is the pinnacle of the global movement that is Streetball. Streetball is basketball in its freest and most creative form – the grassroots of basketball.
Modern basketball is undergoing a transformation. With Stephen Curry leading the Golden State Warriors to unprecedented heights in the NBA, the entire complexion of the sport is changing: more three-point plays; scoring records obliterated; skills like you’ve never seen. And many of these changes were born in Streetball. A gathering of athletes not for money, but for the love of the game, for the freedom to express themselves and to engage at an almost tribal level.
Ball Up has brought the game we love into arenas and made it a first rate production. Boasting an All-Star roster of twelve of the world’s most legendary Streetballers all of whom will take your breath away, with their unique blend of speed, power, finesse and showmanship.
This is more than just an exhibition. One lucky Australian player voted MVP in the series Grand Final will win a 3 year, $US300,000 Ball Up All-Star contract – making their dreams reality.
“The Ball Up team are household names in the US. These guys are global mega-stars,” Ball Up Australia CEO, Peter Fiddes said. “The beauty of this tour is that fans not only have the opportunity to see the best Streetballers in the world in the flesh, but they also have the chance to play against them and win a life-changing professional contract.”
So join the rise of a new phenomenon and catch the Ball Up Streetball Tour of Australia this June.
Tickets go on sale at midday on Tuesday, 17 May 2016 through Ticketek.
