Following a successful launch in Canberra and enjoying overwhelming support in Darwin, CLB3X3 have just announced that their marquee Melbourne event will be held at the Docklands on 16 and 17 September 2016 as part of their National Tour through to early 2017.
In addition to the announcement of the CLB3X3 National Tour schedule that includes stops in Geelong, Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach, Newcastle, Cairns, Perth and Tasmania, CLB3X3 have partnered with The Pick and Roll. The media partnership has been established to help increase the exposure of 3X3 basketball across Australia, a version of the sport that has taken Europe and the USA by storm.
“Champions League Basketball are really pleased and excited to have secured a media partnership with The Pick and Roll,” shared General Manager Matt Hollard.
“Currently, the all new 3X3 platform is gathering huge momentum around the globe and now also within Australia through the exciting rise of CLB3X3! With numerous CLB3X3 FIBA endorsed events popping up in most major capital cities, and with many associations putting on their own tournaments, we can only see this as a good thing with a very bright future.”
“The Pick and Roll’s significant success and rapidly growing market share within the digital and social basketball networks makes this partnership a perfect choice for CLB and our exciting 3X3 platform.”
“The team at The Pick and Roll is excited to be able to further expand our coverage of Australian basketball,” explained Damian Arsenis. “3×3 has experienced rapid growth throughout Europe and the USA. It is only a matter of time before Australia also embraces this fast and exciting form of the game.”
To be held in the Docklands precinct in Melbourne, the CLB3X3 event in September is expected to draw one of the largest fields of any event. With the SEABL and Big V competitions having drawn to a close, the best talent will be available to compete in what is shaping to be a fiercely competitive event – even more so the lure of prize money but also the chance to accumulate lucrative FIBA 3X3 ranking points.
