Matchroom Multi Sport are delighted to announce that iPRO Hydrate will be the Official Hydration Partner of the British Fast5 All-Stars Championship and the British Basketball All-Stars Championship for the second year in succession.
As Official Hydration Partner, iPRO Hydrate will deliver healthy hydration and aid recovery of the competing athletes at both events. The sold-out Fast5 All-Stars takes place from 1-6pm on Saturday, with the All-Stars Basketball taking center stage on Sunday. Both competitions will be staged at the Copper Box Arena in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
iPRO Hydrate will also sponsor the Golden Buzzer Power Play during both events. Each team can hit the iPRO Hydrate Golden Buzzer once per match and when they do, all points scored are doubled for the next two minutes.
Among the All-Star players taking part in this weekend’s Fast5s is England star Jo Harten, who returns to Loughborough Lightning for one day only, Jamaican captain Jhaniele Fowler (Saracens Mavericks) and former Australian Fast5 captain Erin Bell, who will line up for Manchester Thunder.
The British Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship and British Basketball All-Stars Championship will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, DAZN and broadcast partners around the world. Teams are playing for their share of a £100,000 prize fund per event with Wasps Netball the defending Fast5 Champions. Surrey Scorchers hold the All-Stars Basketball title.
