British Basketball League returns to Sky Sports

The British Basketball League has signed a two-year deal with Sky Sports to air 30 live BBL games a season.

As part of the agreement, Sky Sports will also air the BBL Trophy Final, BBL Cup Final, BBL Play-offs and LIVE coverage of the Women’s BBL Play-off final. 

Sky Sports will broadcast a double header, live from the Eagles Community Arena on December 3rd to kick-start the coverage. Sheffield Sharks will tip-off against Cheshire Phoenix in the opening game of the league season, before Newcastle Eagles host London Lions, live on Sky Sports Arena and Sky Sports Main Event from 4.30pm.

Sky Sports coverage will include expert analysis from Kieron Achara MBE, who was part of the London 2012 Olympic squad, and current Newcastle Eagles star Drew Lasker.

BBL Chairman Sir Rodney Walker said: “It is fantastic to be teaming up again with Sky Sports to bring the excitement and action of the BBL to basketball fans at home. We are going to see some excellent games this season as there are incredible British and international players at all 11 clubs. We look forward to working with Sky Sports and the producers Buzz16 to showcase the best of British basketball over the next two years.”

Sky Sports Managing Director Rob Webster said: “We are delighted to welcome the BBL back to Sky Sports. We look forward to showcasing the best of basketball from across the country in what promises to be a busy but exciting period on the horizon. We at Sky Sports are thrilled to be able to support the sport.

“With continued coverage of the NBA and WNBA, the addition of the BBL makes Sky Sports the home of basketball. We can’t wait for the action to get underway on December 3rd from the Eagles Community Arena”
