No NBA London 2016 Ticket? No Problem!

Are you an NBA fan based in and around London? If the answer is yes, and you don’t have yourself a ticket to NBA London 2016, then you might be in luck.

After continuing demand for regularly displayed NBA games in bars and restaurants – Canary Wharf’s Sports Bar and Grill is set to show NBA London 2016 live, and is hoping to display games regularly following the UK event.

Sports Bar & Grill regularly display football, rugby, and NFL games – and following a deal with BouncyOrangeBall, is now set to showcase the NBA – starting with Thursday’s NBA London game.

BT Sport’s coverage of the British battle between Orlando and Toronto starts at 7.45pm, but the Canary Wharf based eatery will be starting its coverage of basketball approximately one hour before – and is inviting as many NBA fans to the event as possible.

Offering dozens of screens and a huge selection of food and drink, the Canary Wharf brand of Sports Bar & Grill is one of the most loved bars in Central London.

Following NBA London 2016, the bar is also set to show NBA games each Sunday evening – with the matinee games (which tip-off at approximately 8pm GMT) being a regular showing at the venue, which will dedicate an array of screens to the games.

On top of this, should Sunday games prove popular, there is also scope for the NBA Playoffs and even late night broadcasts for more dedicated fans being shown in the bar, meaning you’ll never go without your NBA fix ever again.
