Rytas Vilnius 2022 LKL winners try out new revolutionary sport

 Twain Sport, powered by the Hybrid Sports League and technology partner BetGames, hosted Lithuanian basketball champions Rytas Vilnius, to commemorate the launch of its new specialised hybrid sports vertical (T-Basket).

The recent 2022 Lithuanian Basketball League champions were the first professional team to participate in Twain Sport’s new hybrid basketball tournament (T-Basket), which is set to be launched by the Hybrid Sport League in collaboration with its partner company, BetGames.

The day’s celebratory competition with Rytas Vilnius saw the league’s top players compete head-to-head in 60 seconds of action to score the most points while shooting from different distances, randomly selected by computer.

Rytas Vilnius sports director, a former basketball player and 2009 EuroCup champion, Donatas Zavackas, ended the day by winning both tournaments played.

The Hybrid Sport League is the sport’s governing body and will coordinate and supervise the exciting new events schedule, which is set to commence in August 2022 in custom-built arenas across selected European locations.

Twain Sports’ series of hybrid tournaments will offer premium high-frequency action-packed sports, starting with T-Basket, with will deliver a full, head-to-head tournament every single hour – totalling a new match every three minutes.

The highly anticipated league is set to satisfy the demand for increased live sport with a high-frequency entertainment format, while maintaining the highest integrity protocols with safeguarding systems.

Commenting on the event, BetGames’ CEO Andreas Koeberl said: “It was a fantastic occasion to welcome the Vilnius Rytas basketball team to experience the thrill of T-Basket. Top professional athletes competing against each other in such an environment was great to see and made the absolute most of the new concept.

“Twain Sport is all about fast-paced entertainment, and with the tournaments going live in a matter of months, we are really excited to be partnering up as we begin announcing our first operator deals. Alongside this, we’re also going to be rolling out our football-themed tournaments (T-Kick) and more in 2023 and beyond.”

Giedrius Žibėnas, Head Coach for Vilnius Rytas added: “It’s an exciting opportunity to try this new concept, combining a fresh idea of entertainment and sport. The players never know if they are the winner or loser until the score appears at the end, creating a very competitive environment, even for professional athletes.”

“Nobody was entertained with 3×3 basketball at first – and while they said it’s impossible to become part of Olympics, we’ve already seen it expand into what it is today. I believe the same is true here. Even pro players are now choosing between 3×3 or 5×5 basketball. If you expand globally, you will find your audience.”

Chairman of the Hybrid Sports League, Sarunas Mazalas commented: “Our partnership with BetGames is a massive step forward for the Twain Sport project. Our league will now be streamed all around the world and we’re ready to transform the world of sports. It’s been a pleasure to host the Vilnius Rytas team and get the approval of a winning team to our winning concept.”
