Today, Street League Skateboarding (SLS) announces this year's dates and locations of Pro contests in the SLS global qualification structure towards the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.

This weekend, March 5-6, the 22nd Annual Tampa Pro presented by Monster Energy will play host to the kick off of the SLS season for the second year in a row. As a result of the partnership between SLS and Skatepark of Tampa (SPoT) established in 2015, Tampa Pro stands as the official North American Qualifier into SLS, where two pros currently not on the SLS roster will be given an opportunity to win their way into the League. In 2015, Felipe Gustavo and Kelvin Hoefler took the top qualifying spots and will be returning this weekend with the other SLS Pros to contend for championship points. Aside from SLS spots and points, skaters from all around the world will be competing to claim part of the $75,000 prize purse, in addition to the coveted Monster Energy Golden Ticket straight to the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.

Following Tampa Pro, the international SLS Nike SB Pro Open returns to Barcelona, Spain this May as the second entry event that further unlocks the professional competitive space for two more of skateboarding's rawest talent not yet in SLS. The world's best will come together to compete for a Golden Ticket at Skate Agora BDN concrete plaza built by Lateral Thinking in conjunction with Nike SB, the City of Badalona and designed by CA Skateparks.

With a complete SLS roster, the 2016 SLS Nike SB World Tour officially gets underway in Munich, Germany this July as the headlining event of the MUNICH MASH festival at Olympic Park.

For the second year in a row, SLS will include a Women's Division as part of the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship, allowing the world's best female street skateboarders to compete for the title of World Champ.
