Derrick Rose Visits Madrid (PHOTOS)

by July 17, 2013


After visiting Paris, Belgrade and Zagreb—among others—Derrick Rose wrapped up his European tour in Madrid on July 14 and 15. And like everywhere he’s visited this summer, fans came out in droves to meet the Bulls’ PG. Adidas Basketball provides us with the details of the tour’s final leg:

Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls visited Madrid, Spain where he coached a basketball skills clinic with over 300 kids at Campus Gigantes del Basket. Following the clinic Rose surprised fans by visiting the adidas Store at El Corte Ingles where he spoke with fans and signed autographs.

The following day, adidas hosted a basketball event at Canal de Isabel II Sports Centre where media and fans competed in a series of games and contests. Rose watched games and participated in contests with fans on his last stop of the D Rose Tour in Europe.

Inspired by the exciting and attacking on-court play and smooth, understated off-court style of Derrick Rose, fans attending the tours had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and have unique access to Derrick through a multitude of premium, exclusive events including basketball demonstrations and games, contests, in-store appearances, social media and more.

The Asia tour is September 4-16 and includes visits to Tokyo, Japan; Manila, Philippines and Beijing, Wuhan, Shenzhen and Hangzhou, China. The tour will culminate with a late September event in Chicago, where Derrick will connect with fans in his hometown before beginning the NBA season.
