TALL BLACKS NOISE CREWS: the Tall Blacks want our local support to help make the atmosphere rocking at their game, and we are looking to recruit some noise crews to receive free tickets to the game! To be included in the running for some tickets you need to:

  • Have a group of 10-20 people involved
  • All be wearing a consistent theme of dress (not necessarily all identical)
  • Submit a 20-30 second clip of your crew doing: “Defence Chant”; “Let’s Go Tall Blacks”; and a third chant of your crew’s choice (i.e. 7-10 seconds of each chant)
  • Have a Chant leader who will organise the crew on the night and video
  • Final date for entries to be submitted is 12pm Thursday 15 November 2018
  • Submit your entries via the CBA facebook page, or email a link to your video to james@canterbury.basketball
  • The amount of tickets we can give out depends on the quality of entries received, but we anticipate being able to guarantee 80 will be available. Successful crews may see their chant entry videos on the Jumbotron during the pre-game on the night too.
