Hoopsfix All-Star Classic returns for 10th year

The Hoopsfix All-Star Classic is set for its 10th anniversary edition with the 2024 event confirmed to take place on Sunday 26th May at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, London.

Two Under-19 games are on the schedule with the women’s game at 1:30pm followed by the men’s game at 4:00pm, with both games seeing a mixture of Class of 2024 and Underclassmen suiting up, while players will also battle it out in a three-point shootout (1:00pm) and dunk contest (3:30pm).

The Classic's rosters frequently dip into the talent pool of Basketball England's Academy Leagues, with a number of current EABL, WEABL and CBL standouts expected to feature.

Hoopsfix founder Sam Neter said:

“We’re excited to be celebrating the tenth year anniversary of the Classic.

“Jordan are back on board to help us showcase the top junior talent in the country, along with long term partners Molten, Sportserve and 5or6. We’re looking forward to watching them put on a show.”

The event, is organised by the Hoopsfix Foundation, the not-for-profit arm of Hoopsfix.com, with proceeds from the day being ploughed back into the growth and development of the British game.

In 2021 proceeds from the Hoopsfix All-Star Classic were used to help renovate Clapham Common basketball courts.

Early-bird tickets – with over 20% off general admission prices – are now available for the next four weeks, at £12 for adults and £7 for under-18s.

The rosters will be revealed in the coming weeks, along with further announcements.

With the first event being held in 2014 at Brunel University, the Hoopsfix All-Star Classic has become the premier showcase of up and coming British basketball talent.

Moving to Brixton in 2015 and then Crystal Palace in 2022, the event has sold out every year, whilst being live streamed to a global audience.
