NBA Heading to India

NBA India Game 2019

Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings to Play Preseason Games in India

The NBA will host its first preseason games in India.

It was announced that the Indiana Pacers will take on the Sacramento Kings in two preseason contests in Mumbai, India next year, marking the first time a North American sports league staged a game in the country. Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is of Indian descent and understands the magnitude of what the NBA is doing.

“As an Indian-American, it is an honour to help bring this historic moment to the country where I was raised,” Ranadive said in a statement following the groundbreaking announcement. “The sport is experiencing tremendous growth in India and we are excited about continuing to expand the NBA’s reach to fans across the globe. The world wants to watch basketball, and India is a fast-growing new frontier.”

The games will take place at the NSCI Dome on October 4 and 5.

“Our inaugural NBA India Games will help further untap the enormous basketball potential in a country with a thriving sports culture and a growing, young and engaged population,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

With the enormous market that is India, the NBA continues to make its presence felt in the country.
