June 1, 2023 Dubai, UAE – On the eve of the highly-anticipated street basketball event, Red Bull Half Court, Satwa Park’s iconic basketball court is being prepped for the national finals with a unique splash of colors, design, and look.
Red Bull Half Court, which will take place on Saturday, June 3 in partnership with Arada
Real Estate Development and Dubai Sports Council will be punctuated with a youthful and
artistic flair. Satwa Park’s basketball court, one of the oldest basketball courts in Dubai, will be decorated with graffiti inspired by the occasion.
The team of Alienz Art Graffiti, directed by Sam Goush, has developed graphic designs that underscore the sensational nature of the championship and reflect the youthful atmosphere that accompanies its competitions, adding another factor to the attraction of the site, which is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and athletes. The graffiti artists in the team stressed that this project would shed more light on one of the oldest basketball courts.
As for the theme of the artistic project, which will further highlight the nature of the Red Bull Half Court tournament, the Alienz team director said: “We will give the court a new essence with a unique design that a group of the best artists worked on over a period of four to five days, coming up with the perfect graphics and adding more liveliness not only to basketball competitions, but to the entire park.” The graffiti will also showcase Red Bull Athletes and Basketball stars, Wael Arakji and Ehab Amin, “in a way that will wow the local community, and then live on as a unique painting that adorns the stadium and as a reminder of the atmosphere of the Red Bull Half Court UAE finals.”
Red Bull Half Court is a 3v3 streetball tournament which has gathered electrifying talents from over 30 countries, all vying for the grand prize at the finals in Serbia this September.
After a series of qualifiers that went on for weeks across the UAE, and that witnessed great success and a high turnout, all eyes are now on Saturday’s national finals to find out who will snatch the title and have the honor of representing the country at the World Finals this summer, as well as to see Satwa Park stadium’s new look.
