Sixers, Celtics to play regular-season game in London

August 10 2017 3:18 PM

The Phialdelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics are headed to London.

Philadelphia will face Boston in a regular-season game at the O2 Arena on January 11, the NBA announced on Thursday.

The matchup will allow UK fans to get an up-close look at one of the NBA's most exciting young teams in the Sixers — featuring Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz — and a Boston squad led by Isaiah Thomas that finished the 2016-17 regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference.

It will be the second game in England for each team, but both previous trips came during the preseason. This will be the eighth NBA regular-season game in London overall.

"I am delighted the NBA continues to bring the world's best basketball to our great city in what has now become a well-established and eagerly anticipated event on London's sporting calendar," London Mayor Shadiq Khan said in a release.

"I know Londoners will be thrilled to see the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics up close at our world-famous O2. I am determined to make sure London remains the sporting capital of the world, and a key part of that is bringing major sports events here."
