Today, we’re excited to announce the 2016 dates and locations of Pro contests in the SLS global qualification structure towards the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.
Things kick off this weekend, March 5-6, at the 22nd Annual Tampa Pro presented by Monster Energy. Tampa Pro is the official North American Qualifier into SLS, where two pros currently not on the SLS roster will be given an opportunity to win their way into the League. Aside from SLS spots and points, skaters from around the globe will compete to claim part of the $75,000 prize purse, in addition to the coveted Monster Energy Golden Ticket straight to the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.
Following Tampa Pro, the international SLS Nike SB Pro Open returns to Barcelona, Spain in May at the Skate Agora BDN plaza. The world’s best will come together to compete for a Golden Ticket to the 2016 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship, and two non-SLS Pros will solidify their spot in SLS. Skate Agora BDN concrete plaza built by Lateral Thinking in conjunction with Nike SB, the City of Badalona and designed by CA Skateparks.
Including the 2016 SLS Picks, and the four new Pros, the 2016 SLS Nike SB World Tour officially gets underway in Munich, Germany in July for the headline event at MUNICH MASH.
In August a stop in Newark, NJ will solidify the Top 8 pros advancing to the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship in Los Angeles for the first time ever. And for the second year in a row, SLS will include a Women’s Division as part of the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.
We’re going to have a lot of new blood in the 2016 roster, making this the most exciting SLS Season to date. Stay tuned to streetleague.com for full details, contest coverage, and information.
