Fox Sports Goes Live With BIG3 Basketball
Following a competitive and engaging inaugural season of the BIG3, Fox Sports has made fundamental changes to its presentation of the professional 3-on-3 basketball league. In 2018, the BIG3’s ten-week season will be broadcast live on Friday nights, with six windows on FS1 and four windows on the Fox broadcast network.
“Following the success of Fox Sports’ live broadcast of last season’s BIG3 championship game, we knew we wanted to expand that live access for basketball fans throughout the season,” says John Entz, Fox Sports President, Production and Executive Producer. “We’re thrilled to continue to grow our partnership with the BIG3, and we look forward to another season of exciting basketball with some of the most recognized athletes in the game.”
Each week, the BIG3 will play four games back-to-back on Friday evenings, three of which will be broadcast live by Fox Sports and streamed concurrently on FOX Sports GO.
The league tips off on Friday, June 22 on FS1 from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. ET. The BIG3 will then travel to nine additional cities throughout the summer, concluding with playoff rounds and the championship matchup airing in the season’s final two weeks on Fox.
