Join Basketball England and win a trip to NYC, courtesy of the NBA

Basketball England has teamed up with the NBA to offer two of our 18+ members, plus a guest, the opportunity to win a trip to New York City to watch a live regular-season NBA game.

The winners of the free prize draw will claim a trip to go to the Big Apple to watch top-class basketball in one of the world’s most exciting cities at either the New York Knicks’ famous Madison Square Garden home or the Brooklyn Nets’ base at the Barclays Center.

BE CEO Stewart Kellett said:

“With the success and profile of Team England's gold and silver medal achievements at the Commonwealth Games, we wanted to continue the celebration of basketball by linking up with the NBA and offering our members a chance to enter our ‘big ticket’ prize draw for the 2022/23 season. 

“Basketball is thriving in this country, with millions having an affinity for the game, so whether you’re a fan, enthusiast or advocate, you can sign up to become a member of BE for free and unlock a wide range of member-only benefits, as well as stay up to date on the English game. This is also your opportunity to be part of a growing movement of amazing people promoting the great cause of basketball.”

NBA Associate Vice President of Basketball Operations, Europe and Middle East Neal Meyer said:

“Since 2014, the NBA’s partnership with Basketball England has allowed us to bring young boys and girls closer to the game through the Jr. NBA Basketball England League programme. Now, we are thrilled to team up to offer the chance for fans in the UK to attend a live NBA regular-season game this season and enjoy an authentic NBA experience in New York City.”
