NBA’s Inaugural Jr. NBA Global Tournament Getting TV Coverage From Fox Sports

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

April 23, 2018:
The NBA has signed a multi-year pact with Fox Sports to televise the Jr. NBA World Championship, a global youth basketball tournament for elite 13- and 14-year-old boys and girls teams.

U.S. regional for the event are scheduled to begin May 11.

The inaugural title event is scheduled for ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Aug. 7-12. 

Jr. NBA World Championship global ambassadors are Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks.

Fox Sports said it would air 16 games totaling 20 hours of programming during the Jr. NBA World Championship finals on Fox and FS1.

There will be more than ten hours of programming on Fox Aug. 11-12, which includes the boys and girls U.S. and international championship games and the World Championship games between those winners.

Select domestic and international pool play and elimination games will air on FS1.

All games will be simulcast on the Fox Sports app, which now provides live streaming video of Fox Sports content through iOS and Android devices.

“We jumped at the opportunity to partner with the NBA on this unique event,”  Mark Silverman, President, National Networks at Fox Sports, said in a statement.  “The NBA’s stars of tomorrow — the next Dwyane Wade or Candace Parker — might get their first big turns in the spotlight with us, right here at Fox Sports.”

In addition to the U.S., the Jr. NBA World Championship will include teams from eight international regions: Africa & Middle East, Asia Pacific, Canada, China, Europe, India, Mexico, and South America.

There will be more than 70 countries and 32 teams involved.

The Jr. NBA will host eight regional tournaments during the spring and summer of 2018. The tournaments will consist of round-robin competition followed by single elimination boys and girls tournaments. Each team will be guaranteed a minimum of four games.

As part of its coverage, Fox Sports said it would “highlight the important off-court culture of the tournament.

The NBA said that beyond the competition, boys and girls from dozens of countries worldwide will participate in activities — often alongside current and former NBA and WNBA players — including life skills education, physical and mental wellness programming and NBA Cares community service projects.
 
According to Kathy Behrens, NBA president, social responsibility and player programs, “We are thrilled to partner with Fox to provide national coverage of the first-ever Jr. NBA World Championship.

“Fox shares our commitment to showcasing the event’s exciting on-court competition as well as the impactful off-court programming which will showcase our core values that will help set a new standard for youth basketball competitions.”
