BBL on Sky Sports

British basketball is returning to Sky Sports for a new season as BBL Championship action returns to the screens.

Sky Sports will also air the men’s and women’s finals including the Cup Finals on Sunday 30 January 2022, Trophy Finals on 20 March 2022, and the end of season finale Play-Off Finals on 15 May 2022 at The O2 in London.

Tipping off the coverage on Friday 29 October, last season’s Championship winners Leicester Riders will host the 2021 Cup and Play-Off winners Newcastle Eagles. Riders, who have 2021 MVP Geno Crandall back on the floor, will be looking to start their title defence against Eagles who hold the record as most decorated club in the League, with 27 titles to their name. With one of the fiercest rivalries in the game, the action will be live on Sky Sports Arena and Sky Sports Mix from 7.00pm.

Host Nat Coombs will be joined by GB Olympian Kieron Achara MBE, former Newcastle Eagles star and The BBL Show co-host Drew Lasker, and guests from across the League. Buzz16 Productions will produce BBL coverage for Sky Sports. Additionally, they will commit to including Mama Youth apprentices on the production team for BBL coverage.
