NBL Live returns on Saturday - full schedule

NBL Live returns this weekend with Worthing Thunder and Thames Valley Cavaliers going head to head in Week 14 of D1M in the National Basketball League.

The clash between the unbeaten visitors and Thunder will be available for fans to watch in full, as the rescheduled list of live games is confirmed for the remainder of the season.

The cameras will then be heading to Nottingham for Hoods' encounter with Leicester Warriors, with future contests between Oaklands and Derby and Essex and BA London Lions also confirmed in the latter stages of the season.

Games will be streamed on the Basketball England YouTube channel with professional filming and respected commentator John Hobbs joined by a selection of guest co-commentators on the mic. 

Hobbs said: “We are really looking forward to continuing our coverage games this season, especially given the fact that for the foreseeable future, supporters will unfortunately not be allowed to watch their teams in person."

'We want as many clubs as possible to broadcast games'

Basketball England is also encouraging clubs to livestream as many games as possible themselves, through the BE YouTube channel or their own platforms. 

So far this season more than 40 NBL1, WNBL1 and L Lynch Trophy games have been streamed this way on the BE YouTube channel. 

Gail Richards, BE Senior Delivery Manager for Leagues, Competitions and Events, said: Richards added: “NBL Live is our flagship live streaming provision but we want as many clubs as possible to broadcast games themselves as well. We are making our BE YouTube channel available to host streams, along with game-day support, for any clubs who wish to use it. 

“Lots of great content has been broadcast already this season. Any clubs that needs support or guidance should contact us at competitions@basketballengland.co.uk.”
