The first ever NBA 2K17 European All-Star Tournament is set to take place online on the weekend of 10/11 December.
The E-sports tournament will commence almost a week from now and the finalists will get the chance to compete at NBA’s London headquarters, and attend the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets game at The O2, London in January.
The winners of the tournament will win an all-expense paid trip to the NBA All-Star Weekend taking place in New Orleans, Louisiana.
‘We believe NBA 2K17 offers a unique competitive experience for eSports enthusiasts worldwide’, said Alfie Brody, VP of Marketing for NBA2K.
“Following our first Esports Tournament, Road To The Finals, culminating this past June in Los Angeles, it was a high priority for our brand to expand the competition to Europe. We’re excited to offer our European customers the same thrill of global competitive gaming and the chance of being crowned the top NBA2K team in Europe.”
Participants of the tournament must assemble a Pro team of at least 3 players, and a maximum of 10 players, in the Pro-AM mode of NBA 2K17 on PlayStation 4.
The team with the highest score at the end of each contest day will compete in the finals on January 11th, 2017.
