For the first time in the Philippines, all of basketball elements are coming together. Nike is taking a look at the game in a way never done before. From the on-court action, to the off-court beat and movement, the culture of hoops is stronger than ever.
NIKE BATTLE FORCE is a showcase of basketball’s ever-evolving, far-reaching influence. The festivities center around three central elements. On the sidelines of the game itself has always been music, with hip-hop identifying its roots, the current lifestyle around the game and future with hoops.
MYX Philippines will be on the frontlines searching for and honing the country’s best talents in dance and rap. With Abra, Loonie and PH’s top dancers leading the way, the Battle will be as intense off the court as it is on.
Always up to date with the current lifestyle trends, Titan leads the way with the Style Battle. Round up two or more friends, then showcase the squad’s fresh Nike kicks on the Gram. Tag @titan_22 and use the hashtags #BattleForce #Manila to win special prizes.
Finally, when it comes to hoops, 128 teams will try to flex their strengths to determine a Battle Force champion. The country’s top blacktop, Titan Love Court will serve as venue over five weekends of fiery five-on-five competition. There will be no seeding, and the brackets will be random, contributing to what will certainly be an unpredictable tournament. Knockout elimination applies, so needless to say, each team has to bring their A game, every game.
The challenge has been put forth, the battle is upon us, and every force in and around basketball is ready.
Nike Battle Force Manila will be on December 2, starting at 5PM. Catch it live at the Titan Love Court or via live streaming on SLAM Philippines’ Facebook page.
