President, Spiker Sports
Spiker Sports is pleased to announce that we have been chose by Red Bull to supply officials to the upcoming King of the Rock Tournament here in Phoenix, AZ on April 27, 2013.
The Phoenix qualifier for Red Bull King of the Rock, a one-on-one basketball tournament where the finals are held on the island of Alcatraz, will be held on Saturday, April 27. In 2010, Red Bull King of the Rock went down in history as the first official sporting event ever to be held on Alcatraz and the first time basketball had been played on The Rock since the inmates left the island over 50 years ago. Now in its fourth year, the global one-on-one basketball tournament will return with the most competitive field to date. Bigger and better than ever, Red Bull King of the Rock has expanded to qualifiers in 25 countries, including 32 in the United States. From these qualifiers, 64 finalists will head to the island to put it all on the line in The Yard on Alcatraz in September.
There are only two options: win and continue on, or lose and go home. Games will last five minutes and be subject to regulation hoops rules and scoring (two and three pointers). Only the first 64 players to register will be accepted into the competition, so players should arrive early if they want to compete. The qualifier is open to amateur and pros alike, however players must be 16 years of age or older to participate. Participants under the age of 18 will need to have a parent or guardian present to sign a waiver at the qualifier.
Sixty-four of Phoenix’s most talented one-on-one basketball players fighting tooth and nail to earn a “golden ticket” to compete in the Finals on Alcatraz. Only the top player from Phoenix will advance. For info on competing, players should visit http://www.redbullusa.com/kingoftherock
