Summer Super 8 is a new platform for coaches and teams to develop youth talent and strengthen their rosters. Organized in collaboration with the Sports Bureau of Macao SAR Government, this annual tournament’s primary aim is to establish a regional forum for professionals and players in Asia Pacific basketball to come together and showcase their skills. The event does not allow teams to field foreign imports.

The tournament hosted eight of Asia’s top teams: Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers and Guangzhou Long Lions from CBA (China), ETLAND Elephants and Seoul Samsung Thunders from KBL (South Korea), Blackwater Elite and NLEX Road Warriors from PBA (Philippines), Rizing Zephyr Fukuoka from B.LEAGUE (Japan), and Formosa Dreamers from ABL (Chinese Taipei).

Details for the 2019 event will be announced soon.

The Macao East Asian Games Dome is the largest sports infrastructure in Macao. In addition to an impressively large and magnificent dome, it features an expansive green outdoor area where over a hundred species of plants grow. It has not only become Macao’s new architectural landmark but a new sightseeing and recreational area for residents and tourists. The Dome mainly comprises the four separate parts of the Arena, Theatre, Exhibition Centre, and Macao International Convention Centre. They are now used as training bases for various sports programmes. In enriching the sports life of Macao residents, the Dome also represents a new milestone for the organisation of major cultural, entertainment and recreational activities in Macao.
