MVP Sports was also announced as a sponsor of the event, set for February 19-20, 2022.
At the official tournament launch on Friday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, the company will host a three-point shootout with the winner receiving a Steph Curry sneakers.
Managing Director of MVP Sports, Ian Ramdeo, said: “It’s heartening for me personally to see our athletes get a chance to get back out after a very long time of little competition and little play time. So we’re very happy to be part of this tournament.”
The company has also committed a cash prize to the FIBA-endorsed tournament, which is making a return after a two-year hiatus.
For Guyana to boost its chances of contesting more FIBA 3×3 tournaments, and most importantly entering the main draw stage, there is a need for more FIBA-endorsed local 3×3 tournaments.
The upcoming Classic will aid Guyanese and Caribbean players to get much-needed rating points.
Exciting, urban, and innovative, 3×3 is inspired by several forms of ‘streetball’ played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport.
