Contesting the match this time round will be the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics on Thursday 11 January.

It will be the eighth time that the National Basketball Association have sent teams over to play in the Capital, following on from the success of American Football’s NFL season, where they use Wembley Stadium to host matches.

It will be the second time in a decade the Boston Celtics have appeared in London and the first time for the 76ers.

Celtics point guard, Isaiah Thomas said “It’s very exciting for our team and the whole Celtics organisation to compete in front of our loyal fans in London.”
