When are the next hoops games?
Posted On June 19, 2021
The next college basketball game will take place in 2021, which is more than four years after the first basketball game, which took place in 2013.
A total of 30,000 tickets were sold to watch the first game on the college basketball calendar, with the final date of the game scheduled for January 27, 2021.
That was the date that the game was originally played at the Memorial Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, in the year 2020.
“We’re in a great place right now, the NBA is really growing and they’re bringing more people into the league,” Scott says.
“There’s no reason we can’t have another game at a great venue and we’re excited to bring the next game to our fans.”
“We’ve got a great plan in place to get to a great location,” Scott continues.
“We’ve been working with our league partners to get it done and we’ll be bringing it to them this season.”
Scott also revealed that a second game in 2021 would be a “very special” game, but would not be as big as the first.
“It’s a great game and we have a very special relationship with the Kansas City Royals,” he said.
“They’re the first team that ever played in a stadium, and they’ve got the same history and it’s a very great event.”
This is not the first time the NBA has been planning for a second basketball game in the future.
In 2019, the league announced plans to host an all-star game in 2024 in Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks also have expressed interest in playing in the event.
With a total of 23 players from the league currently in the NBA, it is clear that there is a desire to play in the 2021 version of the College Basketball Playoffs.
Scott and the NBA are hoping that the games will bring back fans to the game, with a lot of the money and fans coming from ticket sales.
The 2019-20 schedule will be announced in the near future.
