Tickets for the NBA London Game between Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics at London’s O2 Arena on January 11 will go on sale on October 20 at 9am.

The game marks the eighth regular-season NBA game to be played in London in as many years.

In advance of tickets going on general sale, NBA fans are invited to register their details at NBA.com/London to gain early access to a limited number of tickets via a presale to be held on October 18 at 9am.

The 76ers currently feature 2016-17 NBA All-Rookie First Team members Joel Embiid and Dario Šarić (Croatia), as well as both the 2016 and 2017 number one overall draft picks Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz.

The Celtics are led by four-time NBA All-Star and 2016 NBA Champion Kyrie Irving, 2017 NBA All-Star Gordon Hayward and four-time NBA All-Star Al Horford, who last season led the team in rebounds.

The game will mark the Celtics’ second contest in the capital, having played a pre-season game against the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2007.

The 76ers will be playing their second game in the UK and first game in London, having previously played a pre-season game in Manchester against the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2013.

The NBA London Game 2018 will be supported by world-class marketing partners, including Cisco, Gatorade, Marriott Rewards, Müller, Nike, SAP and Tissot.

Fans in the UK can find more information at NBA.com/UK, the league’s official online destination in the UK, and on Facebook (NBA UK) and Twitter (@NBAUK).
