– The goal of the league is to glorify and promote street culture and streetball community. Streetball is a game of Novi Sad and it’s up to us to show that. Also, the goal of the league is to point out some teams from the category of senior and junior who could compete at a higher level in the future. We want to stimulate them and show them how the tournaments look on the global level through this event, so they have the opportunity to compete and practice through these 10 tournaments – said Bulut.
