#TUB2K Tournament

The #TUB2K Tournament was created to bring together the online NBA2K community in the United Kingdom. Divided into two divisions, PSN and Xbox Live, games are played on MyTeam allowing users to build and create the perfect roster before battling one another in a round-robin league. Each tournament will have its own specific ruleset, including number of fixtures / schedule, line-ups and card limits.

How to Join

Our first competition will run alongside the start of the new NBA season. Entry will be limited to 4 spots in each league, on a first come first serve basis. So don’t wait to sign up.

  3. We’ll send you confirmation of your entry.

Entry still open, the deadline for entry to the first competition has been extended due to a few late dropouts.

Teams

Schedule

The #TUB2K Tournament will consist of 2 round-robin leagues, with 5 competitors per league, finishing with a 1-game, per round knockout playoffs series: playoff seeding will be determined by league standing. Each competitor will play 8 league games: one home and one away game against the other 4 competitors.

A tournament schedule will be drawn up shortly after the entry deadline. Competitors will be expected to play 1 or 2 games per week. The league, therefore, will run for approximately 6 weeks.
