The National Basketball League is regarded as one of the premier basketball leagues in the world, and after a humble beginning, is today home to some of the world’s best players. 

In 1978, New South Wales Basketball president John Raschke sat with 10 interested parties in an unused aircraft hangar at Sydney Airport to discuss the formation of a national competition that would help the development of the sport throughout Australia.

A national competition was also seen as a way of improving the standard of players who would compete for Australia at events such as the Olympic Games and World Championships, with the Australian Boomers now considered a world power.

While NBL games were initially played in small suburban stadiums, clubs now perform at major Australian arenas, including RAC Arena which can seat 14,000+ spectators, and Qudos Bank Arena, which hosted over 15,000 fans for the 2021/2022 Hungry Jack's NBL Grand Final.
