Much like the NFL, the NBA is continuing their efforts and taking some games across the pond as they’re delivering more games in London. This morning, it was announced that the Knicks and the Wizards will play in London on January 17, 2019.
Typing the year “2019,” felt incredibly weird but that’s where we’re headed, folks. The league is as busy as the Nets are this morning as they’ve announced a NBA London game. Here are the details in case you’re ready to travel to London.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) and Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) announced today that the NBA London Game 2019 will feature a regular-season game between the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks at The O2 on Thursday, Jan. 17.
Tickets for the game will go on sale in the autumn. Fans can register their interest in tickets and gain access to presale information and more by visitingwww.NBA.com/London.
Now, in case you can’t make it, here’s how you can catch the game.
The game will be broadcast by the NBA’s broadcast partners across Europe, the Middle East and Africa and on NBA League Pass International.
The league also plans on participating in community events while out there.
In addition to the oncourt action, the NBA London Game 2019 will feature a variety of interactive fan activities, NBA Cares community outreach initiatives and Jr. NBA basketball programming that will bring the NBA experience to fans in London.
I’m just curious to see what the fans will be wearing this time as NFL UK fans go all out in costume.
Fans in the UK can find more NBA information at NBA.com/UK, and on Facebook (NBA UK) and Twitter (@NBAUK). Fans can also purchase all the latest Knicks and Wizards merchandise at NBAStore.eu and at The O2 on game night.
