NBA2K X-Mas Tournament

In collaboration with Stad Kortrijk and the annual international X-Mas basketball tournament, we successfully organized a series of gaming tournaments. This unique event brought together the local community, basketball fans, and esports enthusiasts, all united by their love for the game NBA2K23. With four pre-qualifiers held prior to the main event, the stage was set to showcase the skills of our talented local gamers in the virtual basketball arena.

Fusing sports and esports

The tournament wasn’t just about gaming; it was a celebration of sports, esports, and pure enjoyment. We wanted to create an exceptional experience that would engage and entertain players and spectators alike. By choosing NBA2K23, we not only catered to the gaming community but also attracted the attention of basketball enthusiasts who appreciate the virtual adaptation of their beloved sport.

Influencers join the action

To further enhance the excitement, we invited influential personalities from the gaming and esports world to partake in the festivities. Also local influencers from the Kortrijk area were invited to inform the local youth about XMT’s expansion to gaming tournaments. Their presence added a special touch to the event, making it an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. The influencers’ participation not only showcased their support for the gaming community but also helped bridge the gap between traditional sports and esports.

Not done yet

The success of this event has inspired us to dream bigger and set our sights on making next year’s tournament even more grandiose. We have already begun brainstorming ideas to make it an unforgettable experience for everyone involved, with surprises and improvements that will take the event to new heights. As we continue to plan, we encourage you to stay tuned for further updates and announcements regarding the upcoming tournament.
