Two NBA preseason games to be played in United Arab Emirates in October 2022


Two NBA preseason matches will take place in October 2022 in the United Arab Emirates. The exact dates and posters are yet to be determined, but this will be the North American pro league’s very first foray into the Arabian Gulf.

No preseason games have been played outside of North America since 2019, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Previously, some had been organized in England, France, Mexico, Japan, China and most recently in India.

A partnership has been signed with the Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

It will include interactive events for fans with the presence of current or former NBA players, the launch of NBA junior leagues for boys and girls in UAE schools to foster teamwork and inclusion, or another exhibition of the “NBA 2K League” e-sport competition.
