Sky Sport to broadcast Tall Blacks series in Japan

SKY Sport is proud to announce that the Tall Blacks will return to SKY Sport screens for the first time since 2014 when they take on Japan for a two match series ahead of the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Basketball New Zealand Chief Executive, Iain Potter, says it’s brilliant to have the two test Japan series available for fans back home to watch LIVE.

“It’s outstanding to see the Tall Blacks back on SKY Sport for these two internationals. The level of support shown by SKY Sport to Basketball New Zealand at all levels over the past 12 months has been fantastic. It’s important for Kiwi basketball fans to see our national teams in action and we’re really grateful that SKY sport is actively showcasing basketball.”

The Tall Blacks LIVE broadcast schedule is as follows:

Japan v Tall Blacks - Monday 12 August, 7.55pm, SKY Sport 8
