RedBull King of the Rock is coming to Mzansi and to take over streets of Braamfontein. The game will present thirty-two ballers who will go one-on-one, man vs. man for top honours at the RedBull King of the Rock South Africa Final.
Set for Saturday, 13 August the game will take place at the heart of the city on De Beer Street.
Basketball has been deeply entrenched in hip hop culture for decades and this will see local acts come through for LIVE performances Stilo Magolide, Mkay Fresh and Jerome ‘Slim’ Du Plooy.
The battle will follow an exciting round-robin format that will keep the crowd involved and entertained. The top eight ballers will then be drawn into a single-elimination tournament bracket. This section of the tournament gets really, real: You lose, you go home… In the end, winner takes all and gets to represent South Africa at the Red Bull King of the Rock World Finals in Serbia later this year.
Through three rigorous qualifiers taking place in and around Johannesburg over a 3-week period in July / August, players will be selected to compete in the finals at 10am on the 13th of August – just a stone’s throw away from the Neighbourgoods Market.
