Professional basketball team Changwon LG will host the 2023 LG Whisen Cup 3X3 Basketball Festival at the Changwon Gymnasium Meeting Plaza for two days next month from Saturday, August 8 to Sunday, August 9.
The Whisen Cup, sponsored by LG’s air conditioner brand Whisen and supported by Prospex and Coca-Cola, is the 21st edition of the tournament, which began in 2001. Since the inaugural tournament, LG Electronics Whisen has sponsored the Whisen Cup every year to contribute to customers’ healthy leisure activities and expand the popularity of basketball.
The tournament will host 480 players from 120 teams in five categories: elementary, middle school, high school, general, and special, and the winning team in each category will receive a medal and a total prize of KRW 4.6 million in gift certificates. All participating athletes will receive a Prospex uniform, and Coca-Cola will provide bottled water and Powerade.
The special division will consist of experiential friendly games for fans who want to experience special basketball, such as women’s teams, parent-child teams, and teacher-student teams.
LG, which has been actively marketing its regional ties since settling in Changwon in 2020, will limit participation to residents of Changwon Special City, Gyeongsangnam-do, and Busan Metropolitan City from this tournament to reward the support of fans in the region.스포츠토토
