The-BALL Showcase TourWASHINGTON D.C.: Saturday, August 4th, 2012
PHILADELPHIA: Sunday, August 5th, 2012

Philadelphia invades the Foggy Bottom. Then, Washington raids Hawk Hill. It’s D.C. vs Philly, and you don’t want to miss it.

The-BALL presents a pair of grudge matches between two great basketball cities. These star-studded regional battles will feature former players from the top college programs in each city. For hoops fans in the Washington D.C. and Philadelphia areas, this promises to be THE event of the summer.

And it will be history in the making as you’ll be witnessing the World Premiere of The-BALL, a new professional basketball league that will launch in 2013. You’ll get a taste of the league to come and be able to say you were there when.


In order to enhance the atmosphere at the game, we’re going to have a Student Section, and we’re offering the seats for FREE to any college students who show up wearing their school colors and can show a valid student ID.  Come by our College Student table in front of the arena’s entrance before the game.  On-site staff will be there to check IDs and get students signed in.  Try to arrive early in order to avoid long lines.

Players will be star alumni from the following universities:
•  Georgetown •  Villanova
•  Maryland •  St. Joseph’s
•  George Washington •  Temple
•  George Mason •  La Salle
•  Penn
•  Drexel
