The tournament was organized by representatives of the Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS, i.e., members of the sports-charity “Trojka iz bloka” project and representatives of the Student Parliament of the University of Pristina with a temporary headquarters in Kosovska Mitrovica.



The tournament started with the performance of the national anthem of the Republic of Serbia, “Boze pravde”, and after that the song “Crven cvete”, by the lyricist, Jelena Bojovic. These two songs were performed by the members of the music ensemble Kosovski bozuri, Dragana Milic and Katarina Sulkic.




After that, spectators were addressed by Mladen Matijasevic, “Trojka iz bloka” project manager and Miroslav Milic, president of the Student Parliament of the University of Pristina with a temporary headquarters in Kosovska Mitrovica.



The special guest of the tournament was a former national basketball team player and member of the golden generation from the 2002 World Championship held in Indianapolis, Aleksandar Smiljanic, who took the occasion to present the Student Parliament with a jersey of the Serbian basketball national team with the autographs of all national team players.



The tournament was opened with shots by Aleksandar Smiljanic and the provost of the University of Pristina with a temporary headquarters in Kosovska Mitrovica, Prof. dr Aleksandar Jovanovic.


127 contestants entered for the tournament, the most successful being the third place winner, Lazar Aksic, the second-place winner, Nenad Vukomanovic, and the youngest first-place winner so far, Gojko Zubac.

The amount of 130,630 RSD was raised at the tournament. In a few days, other funds will also be added to this sum - funds raised at a charity student party following the tournament, money collected at the screening of the movie “The Enclave” held on Thursday, April 9, at the cinema in Zvecan, as well as contributions made by several faculties of the University of Pristina with a temporary headquarters in Kosovska Mitrovica.


Those who ensured a great atmosphere at the tournament were good, old friends of the tournament, members of the Belgrade hip-hop band THC la Familia, rap artist Uncle Joe and the best European basketball freestyler, Nemanja Trickey Blazic. The tournament was attended by the director of the movie “The Enclave”, Goran Radovanovic and folk singer from Kosovska Mitrovica, Slobodan Boba Rakic.

Neither rain nor bad weather managed to discourage people to gather in a large number at Ploca, which clearly shows that the Tournament in Kosovska Mitrovica has a bright future in the years ahead.


The season of the Trojka iz bloka Tournaments is to be continued on April 13, in Kraljevo, at the open sports courts on the bank of the river Ibar, starting at 12 o’clock.
