The American Express x NBA 2K22 
Experience pop-up in downtown Los Angeles

NEW YORK, NY, December 10, 2021 – American Express is teaming up with the National Basketball Association (NBA) and 2K to host the first-ever American Express x NBA 2K22 Experience in Los Angeles from December 10 to 12. Located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and just steps away from the Staples Center, The American Express x NBA 2K22 Experience will bring popular and iconic elements of the NBA® 2K digital world to life for Card Members and fans to experience. 

As the Official Card of the NBA, WNBA and NBA G-League, American Express® Card Members who purchase the NBA 2K22 video game on the 2K Store with their American Express Card will receive an in-game code that can be redeemed for 35,000 in virtual currency to be used for in-game purchases. 

Earlier this year, American Express and the NBA expanded their partnership into gaming with the launch of the first-ever NBA 2K virtual gaming benefit. Over the years, the NBA® 2K gaming franchise has become an integral part of basketball culture and the NBA ecosystem. This year, NBA 2K22 continues to put the entire basketball universe in the hands of fans to build their own players, dream teams and more within realistic NBA and WNBA environments. By expanding its NBA partnership into gaming, American Express has once again reimagined what it means to back Card Members and basketball fans, innovating its approach based on how fans choose to engage with the NBA in today’s world.

NBA 2K is at the heart of NBA culture, and our first-ever American Express x NBA 2K22 Experience holistically brings the excitement of the game to fans to experience in real life,” said Shiz Suzuki VP, Global Experiential Marketing & Partnerships at American Express. “We are long-standing partners of the NBA, and it’s been incredible to evolve our partnership to infuse the passion around gaming into what Card Members can experience and access when they are with Amex.”
