Sponsorship Information

The Original “Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament” was started in 1974 by Scott McNeal (alias Gus Macker) in his parents’ driveway in Lowell, Michigan. It started with 18 friends playing competitively for $18. The tournament continued to grow, and in 1987, the “Gus Macker All-World Tour” was greeted with enthusiasm and spectacular news coverage in every area. Over 10,400 players participated in five cities in that first year. Since 1987, the Macker Tour has expanded, holding both indoor and outdoor tournaments in over 75 cities, with over 200,000 players, and 1.7 million spectators enjoying 3-on-3 competition, family, and fun each year.
