London to Host Sixers and Celtics

After much rumours and speculation the NBA announced today that NBA London will this year host a game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics.

The 2018 game is set to be one of the biggest to ever come to London with both the Celtics and 76ers having a wealth of talent on their rosters. The Celtics, the NBA’s most successful franchise with 17 Championships, come into this season having finished first in the Eastern Conference and have a host of stars who will be coming to London including two-time NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas, 2017 NBA All-Star Gordon Hayward and four-time NBA All-Star Al Horford. The 76ers boast one of the best young teams in the league and will bring the number one picks from 2016 and 2017, Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons, alongside established star Joel Embiid.

The Philadelphia 76ers will host the Boston Celtics at The O2 on January 11;  to sign up for early access to tickets, exclusive offers and the latest team news, please visit www.NBA.com/London
