Hoopfest partners with the City of Lights for Las Vegas 3on3

Hoopfest Weekend is just around the corner, and we are gearing up to once again bring you some great moments through great basketball. The Saturday of Hoopfest is also opening registration day for another streetball weekend. Las Vegas 3on3 powered by Spokane Hoopfest is returning to The Strip on September 9-10.

MGM Resorts International and Spokane Hoopfest are partnering to bring the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth back to the city of Las Vegas. We want to create another unique 3on3 experience, but we need your help! Whether you are a player, volunteer or spectator, this event will have something for everyone, just like Hoopfest.

“It’s always great to partner with a global brand in MGM with all of the different avenues and resources that they have,” Hoopfest’s Executive Director Matt Santangelo says. “It’s always great to take Hoopfest beyond our natural borders and get [Hoopfest] out there. I always say this should be a huge source of pride because there are so many cities that come up and see what happens in Spokane and try and create it. And we are talking about Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, they want to take some of our magic and recreate it there.”

Las Vegas 3on3 will have food, shopping, interactive entertainment, giveaways and of course, some basketball!

The tournament will take place in the Toshiba Plaza, located near The Park, Las Vegas’ newest outdoor dining and entertainment district. The Park is a new central gathering place on the west side of the Vegas Strip, connecting New York-New York, Monte Carlo and the T-Mobile Arena. This offers players and fans one convenient location to dine, shop and hoop it up.

There’s room for players of all skill levels, heights and abilities, middle school-aged and up. Each bracket will be developed according to height, gender, age and competition level so every team can find the best fit for them.

  • ELITE – $200

“We are so thrilled to be partnering again with MGM Resorts International® to hold the second annual Las Vegas 3on3 basketball tournament, which debuted last October,” expresses Bailee Neyland, the Director of Brand Strategy and Business Development for Hoopfest. “What a perfect brand partner to create a complementary event.
