Some of the finest college basketball players will take to the court in Northern Ireland for an historic tournament- 'Basketball Hall of Fame Belfast Classic.'
The SSE Arena will host the event, which will run on the 1st and 2nd of December, and is due to be held for the next four years.
For the first time, a country outside of the US will host a tournament with college sides; namely Holy Cross, Manhattan College, La Salle University & Towson University.
There have been just one-off matches in other countries.
There will also be championship and consolation play on the second day.
It's being held in conjunction with the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, Sport Changes Life, Rory McIlroy’s Foundation, the Rory Foundation, and The SSE Arena, Belfast.
Sport Changes Life is a registered UK charity and US nonprofit organisation, which aims to help young people from disadvantaged communities to find a path to a brighter future with the help of international student-athletes.
