Nike is at it again, bringing their action-packed Battle Force back to Melbourne, all in celebration of the Air Force 1.

Battle Force will be bringing together basketball, music, style and street art, celebrating hip-hop culture and the iconic AF1. Not only will you witness some of Australia’s top streetball athletes do their thing, but guests can also create their own sneakers and customise jerseys.

Okay let’s break this down, shall we?

It's worth noting is that the Foot Locker House of Hoops Truck will be there and are dropping a range of Nike kicks on the day.

The day will host the men’s and women’s Melbourne Streetball Madness Championship. This ultimate basketball challenge will see the final teams go head-to-head for their chance to win a $25,000 cash prize. Baller.

And like it couldn’t get better, in attendance will be some seriously elite talent—MC Tkay Maidza and choreographer Parris Goebel, along with guest DJs.

The week leading up to Battle Force will also be pretty epic; Tkay and Parris will be hosting some exclusive Nike Force is Female workshops in Melbourne, raising up the next generation of female dancers and musicians.

Offering some unbelievable opportunities; Tkay will be mentoring aspirating female MCs at a writing session and Parris will host an intimate choreography session for 40 upcoming female dancers. Two of those dancers will land a spot in her crew’s performance at Battle Force.

Entry is free but places are limited—registrations are open now so move, move, move. You can also check out all the highlights from the day on Foot Locker's socials
