NBA 2K League to host 2nd APAC Invitational

NBA 2K press release SEOUL AND NEW YORK – The NBA 2K League announced today that the 2020 NBA 2K League APAC Invitational, the league’s second international qualifying event in the Asia-Pacific region, will take place Monday, Jan. 20 - Tuesday, Jan. 21 at Nexon Arena in Seoul, South Korea. The two-day event will identify several elite players from the Asia-Pacific region who will become eligible for the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft *. The NBA 2K League APAC Invitational will feature 20 of the top NBA 2K players from Australia, China, New Zealand, the Philippines and South Korea competing over two days of gameplay, including scrimmages and a tournament, and participating in interviews with league representatives. The tournament on Jan. 21 will be livestreamed on the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels and in China on Tencent’s Penguin Esports, Douyu and Huya beginning at 3:30 p.m. local time. The two Filipinos participating are Custer George Galas (Gamertag: PBE_Custer) and Aminolah "Rial" Polog Jr. (Gamertag: PBE_Rial). The NBA 2K League also today launched the league’s official Weibo channel in China. NBA 2K League fans in China can follow along for the latest news, updates and content from the NBA 2K League. “We’re excited to be holding our second Asia-Pacific invitational in Seoul and that Gen.G will be working with us on the event as part of our strategic relationship to develop elite NBA 2K talent across the Asia-Pacific region,” said NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue. “Last season’s APAC Invitational identified several players who became eligible for the NBA 2K League Draft, and given the talent in the region we fully expect the level of competition to be even greater this year.” The NBA 2K League identified players for the APAC Invitational through Gen.G’s recent Shanghai Invitational (Gen.G’s first-ever Pro-Am tournament in China that featured 20 of the best Chinese NBA 2K players), the NBA 2K League Combine and historical performances in NBA 2K events. At the end of the APAC Invitational, a committee comprised of league representatives, select NBA 2K League players and team personnel serving as scouts on the league’s behalf will identify several players who will become eligible for the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft. As part of the APAC Invitational, on Jan. 20 Gen.G CEO Chris Park will unveil Gen.G’s NBA 2K League team name, logo and social media channels. On Jan. 21 the NBA 2K League will host the NBA 2K League Global Invitation Match, a series of exhibition matches featuring APAC Invitational players and 2019 NBA 2K League Finals MVP Michael “BearDaBeast” Key (T-Wolves Gaming) playing against top representatives from NBA2K Online 2 (a free-to-play online game published in China), including National League Champion “Shy.” The NBA 2K League Global Invitation Match will also be livestreamed in China on Tencent’s Penguin Esports, Douyu and Huya beginning at 11:30 a.m. local time. Last season Jack “Jaacko” Stevenson (New Zealand) became the first player ever drafted from the APAC Invitational when he was selected 50th overall by Pistons GT, the NBA 2K League affiliate of the Detroit Pistons.   In September, the NBA 2K League announced that Gen.G, the global esports organization connecting the best gamers in the U.S. and Asia, would launch an NBA 2K League team from Shanghai that will join the other 22 NBA 2K League teams for the 2020 season. In addition to launching the Shanghai franchise, Gen.G and the NBA 2K League announced a long-term relationship to grow the NBA 2K League’s global player pool and fanbase. Last summer, Tencent, a leading provider of comprehensive Internet services in China, streamed condensed 2019 NBA 2K League Playoff and Finals games to its hundreds of millions of daily users across Tencent Sports, Tencent Video and Tencent News.

Gen.G to launch Shanghai NBA 2K League team

NBA 2K League press release NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, SEOUL AND SHANGHAI – The NBA 2K League today announced that Gen.G, the global esports organization connecting the best gamers in the U.S. and Asia, will launch an NBA 2K League team from Shanghai that will join the other 22 NBA 2K League teams for the 2020 season. The Shanghai franchise will be the centerpiece of a long-term strategic relationship between the NBA 2K League and Gen.G that will mobilize Gen.G’s multicultural brand and multi-title esports presence to expand the global footprint of the first official esports league operated by a U.S. professional sports league. Gen.G’s team, which will train at Gen.G’s Los Angeles HQ during the 2020 season, will be the first NBA 2K League team outside of North America.   Gen.G, whose investors include LA Clippers alternate governor Dennis Wong and whose teams compete in seven other major titles, is also the first NBA 2K League team not affiliated with an NBA team. Gen.G’s NBA 2K League team will be Gen.G’s second esports franchise (joining Seoul Dynasty of the Overwatch League) and second entry in Chinese esports (China Clash Royale League). We’re excited to welcome @GenG to the NBA 2K League as they launch a team from Shanghai! pic.twitter.com/wo05xpNFeb— NBA 2K League (@NBA2KLeague) September 27, 2019 “This is a historic moment in the NBA 2K League’s journey to becoming a truly global league with fans, franchises and players from all over the world,” said NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue. “Gen.G is the ideal organization to launch our first team from outside of North America, and we look forward to working with Gen.G to reach new fans in Shanghai and identify elite talent across Asia.” “We are honored to help lead the NBA 2K League’s expansion into Asia and proud to represent Shanghai on behalf of the hundreds of millions of Chinese fans who love basketball and video games,” said Chris Park, CEO of Gen.G. “Gen.G’s unique core mission -- to connect esports fans and athletes across the U.S. and Asia -- is meant for ambitious ventures like this.  We have big plans to help grow the NBA 2K League in communities around the world that are passionate about basketball and video games.” In addition to launching the Shanghai franchise, Gen.G and the NBA 2K League today announced a long-term relationship to grow the NBA 2K League’s global player pool and fanbase. As part of the terms, Gen.G will collaborate with the NBA 2K League on player development and talent identification in Asia, brand development in Asia, and worldwide esports and gaming programming. Together, the NBA 2K League and Gen.G will build a world-class pipeline for the next generation of great Asian players, develop NBA 2K League content for the more than 12 million followers of Gen.G’s global esports portfolio and the NBA 2K League’s global audience, and promote the NBA 2K League to fans around the world. Today’s announcements are also important milestones for inclusion and professionalism in esports, values that the NBA 2K League and Gen.G have championed individually and will champion together through this strategic relationship. In August, the NBA 2K League held its first-ever development camp for elite female NBA 2K players at the NBA 2K League Studio in New York City, and Gen.G announced its all-women Fortnite team – Gen.G Empowered by Bumble (Team Bumble) – as part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to driving women’s empowerment in gaming and esports. Gen.G and Hornets Venom GT, the NBA 2K League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets, will participate in the NBA 2K League Expansion Draft Lottery on Friday, Oct. 4. Additional details about Gen.G’s NBA 2K League team will be announced at a later date.
