May 18, 2016 (DALLAS, TX) The Dallas Mavericks and Mineplex, LLC have signed an exclusive partnership to create a “Dallas Mavericks World,” complete with a scale model of American Airlines Center, on the Mineplex server. The Mavs will be the first NBA team to partner with Mineplex, one of the largest Minecraft servers in the world, which hosts millions of unique users every month.
“The Dallas Mavericks have always been big supporters of education in our community,” said Mavs proprietor Mark Cuban, “but now we can truly be a part of it on a global scale. Minecraft is not just a game, it’s a way for kids (and adults) to build, explore and learn the fundamentals of computer science.”
Within the “Dallas Mavericks World,” players will be able to compete in fun, free-building competitions and play a basketball mini-game on the virtual court of American Airlines Center.
The Dallas Mavericks Minecraft World is scheduled to launch later this summer, exclusively on Mineplex.
