Basketball | A Global Premium Sport
Basketball is everywhere. Played all over the world on the biggest stages.
Invented just over 120 years ago, basketball is a growing sport with, at its core, an estimated 450 million players and fans worldwide who compete, watch or follow a game they love and feel deeply passionate about.
Gender neutral, continuously breaking down racial and religious barriers, basketball unites rather than divides.
Young and fast, modern and exciting, basketball is above all else inspiring.
A TV favourite, it is also the most popular team sport of the Olympics, the world’s favourite sporting event.
