This event is the first time since the formation of the Singapore Slingers Team in March 2006. As the Singapore Slingers are hosting matches in the Singapore Indoor Stadium, opponent teams from the Philippines, China, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Australia will be coming to Singapore. Hence, these basketball teams throughout the region will spend their money on accommodations, foods and beverages, visiting sites in Singapore etc. All these are tourism activities which will then help generate revenue to the Singapore economy.
Apart from the basketball teams, supporters of each team will also visit Singapore to support them in the Singapore Challenge Series. This group of people may also take part in tourism activities which will then contribute to the Singapore economy.
