The National Basketball Association and TAB have announced an expanded multiyear partnership that makes TAB the Official Wagering Partner of the NBA in Australia.
During the NBA’s landmark 75th Anniversary Season in 2021-22 and beyond, the NBA and TAB will work together to deliver innovative gaming experiences to Australian fans. TAB will be featured across the NBA’s digital platforms, including NBA.com, the NBA App, NBA Australia’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, and will serve as the presenting partner of a localized version of NBA Pick‘Em, the NBA’s free-to-play prediction game.
“The NBA is one of the world’s great sporting organizations,” said Tabcorp Wagering & Media Managing Director Adam Rytenskild. “The popularity of the NBA in Australia continues to grow, particularly amongst younger audiences. We have a strong focus on Racing and this partnership strengthens TAB’s sport offering which will enable us to introduce new customers to wagering and to Racing. We look forward to working with the team at the NBA to provide our customers with a unique offering through outstanding products, promotions and content.”
“Fan engagement is the core of our partnership with TAB, a proven leader and innovator in the wagering space,” said NBA Asia Executive Vice President & Managing Director Scott Levy.
“This NBA season is primed to be yet another thrilling basketball showcase, and together with TAB, we will deliver the best possible gaming experience to deepen our engagement with the many passionate NBA fans in Australia who are interested in gaming.”
