BBL Basketball to be streamed for FREE on UNILAD this season

Bristol Flyers fans will be able to enjoy a FREE live game each week on the ever-growing UNILAD and UNILAD Sport Facebook pages, the former of which has a staggering 32 million followers worldwide.

As well as UNILAD showing live BBL games in full for the entire 2017/18 season, they will also be featuring highlights packages and plays of the week as the sport continues to get more coverage than ever before.

Every BBL game is already being shown on LiveBasketball.TV (242 games in total) and BBC Sport will be broadcasting 23 live games from December.

UNILAD is a British-based internet media company and website which provides news, entertainment and sport with a social media-first approach. Last year, UNILAD was named the top Facebook page and online video channel in the world, with UNILAD Sport rapidly expanding its reach as well.

Ed Dowdell, UNILAD's Sports Commissioner commented: "We are really excited to be working with the British Basketball League and can’t wait for the season to get underway from Worcester on Friday!

“We’re looking forward to bringing our fans a game each week and showcasing the best of British basketball to our global audience."

Meanwhile Bob Hope, BBL Commercial Director added: "This is yet another chapter in the story of BBL's unrelenting pursuit to become a major professional sports league in the UK.

“Our agreement with UNILAD is a great opportunity and also links closely to our digital strategy, which is evolving rapidly as we try to maximise the growing popularity of the sport.”

The first games to be streamed will be one of the first games of the BBL Regular Season on Friday September 29th, when Worcester Wolves entertain London Lions.

There will also be a bonus on opening weekend, with UNILAD also streaming what is shaping up to be a record-breaking crowd for Glasgow Rocks on Sunday October 1st.

More than 5,000 fans are expected to be in attendance at the Emirates Arena for their match-up against DBL Sharks Sheffield.

The full schedule of games to be streamed on UNILAD will be announced in the coming weeks.

Bristol Flyers Fans are encouraged to like and follow UNILAD at their Facebook page 

www.facebook.com/uniladmag and also at their UNILAD Sports Page www.facebook.com/uniladfootball ahead of this weekend’s action.
