AND 1 Street Ballers set to tour Kenya this weekend
The And 1 basketball tour will once again liven Kenyan sports scene this weekend with two matches against local teams. One match in Nairobi on Saturday and the second in Mombasa on Sunday.
The AND 1 team will feature celebrated street basketball Stars including Hotsauce, 50, Jus Fly, Pharmacists ,Werm, Amazn, Highrizer, Polo, Spyda and their Emcee Rell. These stars have featured in various events and movies, key among them the Nike Dribbling Commercials, ESPN Street Ball Series and various Street ball Video games for PS2, Xbox, PS3 and XBoz 360.
Last year during their tour in June over 5,000 fans packed the Nyayo gymnasium to witness some of the best street Ballers in the world. But the And 1 team as strong as it sounded were handed a surprise resistance by the Kenyan version of street ballers in a fully packed gymnasium. The match ended 134-100 in favor of the visitors who dominated all quarters recording (38-26, 32-23, 32-27, and 32-24)
To avoid a repeat of last year, organizers have set price tickets at 1,000 shillings. This according to the organizers will limit the number of fans while at the same time bringing in the same amount of expected revenue. Tickets will start selling at the match venue at the Nyayo stadium on Saturday morning.
In Nairobi on Saturday, the event will be played at the Nyayo stadium gymnasium while in Mombasa organizers are yet to settle for a venue. However The Aga Khan Gymnasium is the most likely to host the big date with the world’s best street Ballers.
