On November 9-10, Mavs Gaming will host the Texas Ticket, bringing together the metroplex’s best NBA 2K players to compete in a 5v5 Pro-Am 2K tournament at the Mavs Gaming Hub. The stakes are high for competitors with two officials spots up for grabs in the NBA 2K League season three draft pool. The Texas Ticket also has the largest of the league’s pro-am tournament prize pools at $6,000.
The Texas Ticket, sponsored by Red Bull and Subway, is part of the NBA 2K League’s initiative to allow current league teams to host their own pro-am tournament and find new competitors for season three of the league. Mavs Gaming is the only team to host their tournament, the Texas Ticket, in person at the Mavs Gaming Hub, rather than online.
All four of Mavs Gaming current players, Dimez, Mo, Sherm and PeteBeBallin will all be in attendance on Saturday and Sunday. The tournament has also attracted current players and coaches from across the league to Dallas for this one of a kind experience, including Goofy757 (Grizz Gaming), JMoneyRep (T-Wolves Gaming), Lord Beezus (Pacers Gaming), Reizey (Magic Gaming), UserPick (Wizards District Gaming) and more. These current league members will also have the opportunity to compete in an All-Star Showcase, hosted on Saturday evening at the conclusion of tournament play.
“We are so excited to be the first and only team to host a physical 5v5 Pro-Am tournament. It is an amazing opportunity for the city of Dallas to come out and see what the 2K League is all about, plus there are some amazing prizes for the competitors” says LT Fairley, Head Coach of Mavs Gaming.
Today is the last day for teams to register and get in on the action. The final competition schedule will be announced tomorrow and spectators are invited to attend starting at 8:30AM on Saturday and 9:00AM on Sunday. For more tournament information, please visit MavsGaming.
