A new NBA 2K17 tournament run by 2K gives European players the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The European All-Star Tournament will take place online on December 10th and 11th. Teams will battle it out on PS4 over both days, with the top team from each day qualifying for the LAN final in London.
The final will take place at the NBA headquarters in London on January 11th 2017, with both teams also getting seats for the NBA Global Games London featuring the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets at the O2 Arena.
Whoever wins the final will grab the trip to the All Star weekend, which is certainly one of the cooler prizes in the world of eSports.
“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.”
