Tipping off on October 11, FOX SPORTS will deliver LIVE, ad-break free during play and HD coverage of one of the world’s premier basketball leagues. The upcoming season will be headlined by the arrival of Sydney Kings star Andrew Bogut, who returns home after 13 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Head of FOX SPORTS, Peter Campbell, said: “It’s fantastic Foxtel will continue as the home of the NBL with every game of the 2018/19 season. And with the return of one of Australia’s all-time basketball greats, it’s set to be a bumper season. “Basketball fans have plenty to look forward to on Foxtel. The Opals’ World Cup matches and Boomers’ qualifiers, the WNBL plus the exciting BIG3 US league and the NBA which is just around the corner.” NBL Chief Executive Jeremy Loeliger said: “We look forward to the NBL returning to FOX SPORTS this season. This is a golden era for Australian basketball and this NBL season will be the biggest yet. “We believe the NBL is the best league outside of the NBA and we’re delighted fans will be able to watch every game on FOX SPORTS.” FOX SPORTS is available exclusively on Foxtel.
