The NBA unveiled the All-Star logo Sunday night for next year's game that will be played in Cleveland.

The NBA on Wednesday announced that tickets are on sale for NBA Crossover, an immersive fan event that is a part of the NBA All-Star 2022 schedule in Cleveland.

The NBA All-Star Game will be held Sunday, Feb. 20 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. As part of the All-Star festivities coming to Cleveland, NBA Crossover is a weekend-long event that will take place at the Cleveland Public Auditorium from Friday, Feb. 18 through Sunday, Feb. 20.

NBA Crossover is an exhibition that "will showcase the intersection of basketball and culture through art, fashion, music, technology and entertainment," according to a release. Fans can engage with the exhibit through immersive experiences, NBA and WNBA player appearances, apparel customization and more.

Fans can also win prizes to NBA Crossover, as well as to the other NBA All-Star events (Rising Stars Game, etc.) through the NBA All-Star Rewards program via the downloaded NBA Events App. Fans can receive points in a city-wide scavenger hunt by scanning QR codes through the app when visiting nearly 200 locally-owned restaurants and retail businesses, "more than 70 percent of which are minority- or women-owned," according to the release.

The list of restaurants that are in the program can be browsed after downloading the app. Points can then be redeemed for tickets to a number of All-Star weekend events or gift cards.

Tickets to some of the other events, like the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game and the first ever NBA HBCU Classic, will go on sale in the coming weeks.
