Baku, September 16, AZERTAC
Azerbaijani basketball player Amil Hamzayev will compete in Red Bull King of the Rock World Final 2016 to held in Belgrade, Serbia on September 17.
Along with Hamzayev, the winner of Red Bull King of the Rock Azerbaijan Final 2016, the tournament will bring together basketball players from Angola, Argentina, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Taiwan, Turkey, South Africa and Estonia.
After a series of qualifying events taking place around the world, the best and toughest finalists (Kings and Queens) face off to crown the new champion. The tournament follows a straightforward concept where players battle head-to-head in raw outdoor basketball, using a single-elimination tournament bracket. Games last five minutes and are subject to regulation hoops rules and scoring (two- and three-pointers). Players have to be tough to make it to the finals, but also have to play smart – five fouls equal an automatic loss.
