With the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 tipping off on Saturday across 8 cities in China, a lot of UK hoop heads are trying to work out where they can watch it and as usual, the British basketball fanbase are left with limited options.
Currently there are two (legal) options; Discovery/Eurosport are going to show the FIBA Basketball World Cup games on the Eurosport Player, whilst all games will be on FIBA’s own livestreaming platform at LiveBasketball.TV, where you can buy a pass exclusively for the tournament for a one off cost of £8.99, with access ending on September 25th.
With a record 54 NBA players involved, including reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo with Greece, plus Nikola Jokic with Serbia, France’s Rudy Gobert and Kemba Walker with reigning champions USA, who have been decimated by withdrawals, the tournament will not be short of action.
Fans remain hopeful that a TV broadcaster pick up the semi-finals, third place game and final, but nothing is confirmed as yet. Keep an eye on the FIBA Basketball World Cup official website where they list local TV broadcasters under each game (based on location you are searching from) for any future updates.
