Players traveled from all over the country, including Busan, Changwon, Cheongju, Daejeon, Seoul, and Hongcheon, to participate in the KXO Budget Tour held in Budget. Although there was a rainy weather forecast due to the overlap of the tournament period with the rainy season, the two-day event was successfully completed thanks to the cooperation of the 파워볼사이트 추천 Budae County officials and the participating players.

The KXO Budget Tour attracted attention with the participation of overseas athletes. Japan’s Sagamihara and Shinagawa traveled to Budae to participate in the sixth round of the KXO League with a ticket to the international tournament on the line, and the two teams competed against Korean 3×3 teams including Budae Hanwool E&C, Seoul Cosmo, Hongcheon, Busan Clean Shot, and Hamo Jinju over two days.

In the Men’s Open, which was as exciting as a professional game, the Stuff Bisons, who first stepped onto the KXO court on the KXO Budget Tour, enjoyed their first win thanks to a 15-point performance from Kim Han-seong.

In the sixth round of the KXO League, which featured Japanese players, Budget Hanwool E&C, whose ace Bang Sung-yoon suffered a calf injury in the quarterfinals and missed the finals, played against Japan’s Sagamihara, but couldn’t overcome the numerical disadvantage and lost the title.

By winning the title in its first appearance in the KXO League, Sagamihara earned a ticket to the FIBA 3×3 Kaohsiung Challenger 2024 in Taiwan in September.
