CPA AUSTRALIA NBL ALL AUSTRALIAN TOUR TO BE BROADCAST LIVE ON FOX SPORTS
The National Basketball League is pleased to announce that the three-game CPA Australia NBL All Australian tour of China will be broadcast live on FOX SPORTS.
The games in Nanning, Guangzhou and Beijing will be played from Friday 6 May – Tuesday 10 May, and broadcast live at 9:30pm EST across the country.
In a major coup for Australian basketball, the games will also be televised on China’s national sports channel CCTV5 – with an audience reach of approximately 1.2 billion people.
NBL General Manager Jeremy Loeliger said that the broadcast of the tour is an incredible opportunity to showcase the NBL, both in Australia and Asia.
“Our landmark deal with FOX SPORTS ahead of last season took our competition and the new NBL to the next level – and we’re really pleased to have their support for this off-season tour as well.
"It is shaping up to be a highly-competitive international series that all sports fans will enjoy.”
FOX SPORTS presenter Matt Russell and NBL icon Steve Carfino will form the commentary team.
