Red Bull Reign, an interstate 3 x 3 basketball tournament, is returning to Detroit. The Detroit qualifier returns for its second year on June 25th to the Joe Dumars Fieldhouse.
The winners of the qualifiers will head to Chicago’s Seward Park for the Red Bull Reign finals to face off against each other in hopes of winning the ultimate street ball competition.
This is a big competition, with qualifiers from big cities across the eastern half of the country, including New Orleans, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Indianapolis and Chicago – as well as Detroit.
Endurance is the name of the game. It’s not just one round – teams must go multiple rounds if they want to rule the court of victory. 24 teams will be selected from the pool of registrants.
Round 1 and 2 games will be pool-play and each game will last eight minutes. The final round will be a bracketed tournament and will run 10-minute games, with the winning team earning their spot in the Red Bull Reign Finals in Chicago.
The winning team from the qualifier must have the same roster to participate in the Chicago finals. The qualifier is open to amateur and pros alike, however players must be 18 years of age or older to participate. There is a $25 registration fee and you can register online – and registration is first come, first serve.
The event will go down at the Joe Dumars Fieldhouse, 1120 West State Fair in Detroit on Saturday, June 25. Competition begins at 10 a.m.
