The All Star Game 2021 edition takes place this Wednesday at the Accor Arena (Bercy), in the south-east of Paris. And good news for French basketball fans, they will be able to come in large numbers to attend the event organized by the National Basketball League (LNB).
Indeed, the enclosure will refuel for the occasion – and for one of the last times before the entry into force of new health measures limiting access to 2,000 people in interest. © rieur – with no less than 16,000 people expected. After its cancellation last year due to the pandemic, the All Star Game will therefore be sold out. Wearing a mask will of course remain compulsory, as will the presentation of the health pass.
An event that has found its place since its creation in 2002, thanks in particular to its organization in the middle of the end of year celebrations, the All Star Game intends to make the show again: Believe the Parisian, the atmosphere “in NBA mode” will be provided by the DJ operating in the Los Angeles room, while cheerleaders, mascots and other surprises will be waiting for you. Not to mention the famous 100,000-euro shootout, where a member of the audience is chosen at random to try their luck on a single shot from the middle of the field. And if the ball enters the hoop, it’s the jackpot.
On the floor side, the traditional dunks competition, always spectacular, will of course be there before giving way to an exhibition match between the France team, which brings together some of the best players of Betclic Elite (the France) and will be coached by Vincent Collet, and the World team.
For those not lucky enough to be able to go to the Accor Arena, the All Star Game will be broadcast live on Bein Sports from 7 p.m.
