The events include an expanded NBA Africa Game Fan Zone, the first NBA Africa Innovation Summit and Jr. NBA Africa Festival, a sports medicine symposium, and a series of events to leave a lasting legacy in the community.
“We are thrilled to expand our footprint in South Africa as we celebrate the second NBA game in Africa,” said NBA Vice President and Managing Director for Africa, Amadou Gallo Fall.
“Our week of events and extensive outreach in the local community continue our efforts to grow the game and create positive social change across the continent. We are grateful to all our partners for their support throughout this journey.”
“We are a proud partner of the NBA Africa Game, which gives fans and communities the opportunity to experience the magic of the game firsthand on and off the court,” said Econet Media President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Hundah.
“Ultimately, as the official home of the NBA in Africa, we are committed to exposing more African sports fans to basketball through our exclusive coverage of the game across our various platforms.”
