Basketball: Boston Celtics to face Philadelphia 76ers at O2 Arena in London

Basketball: Boston Celtics to face Philadelphia 76ers at O2 Arena in London

This stands as the first time that the Celtics have played a regular season game in London, as well as the eighth time that the National Basketball Association has hosted a game in London during the regular season.

The contest will be the league's eighth regular-season contest in London, and it will mark the second appearance for Philadelphia and Boston after playing preseason games in London and Manchester, respectively.

The 76ers will be playing their second game in the United Kingdom and first in London, having previously played a pre-season match in Manchester against Oklahoma City Thunder in 2013. "Fans across the world have grown to love the game as basketball cheering for Wilt, "Doctor J", "Sir Charles" and, certainly, Allen Iverson".

For once, the Sixers aren't one of those teams this coming year.

In December of 2015, Harris and Blitzer invested £50 million in Crystal Palace F.C. of the European Premier League, giving them each an 18 percent ownership stake in the London-based club.

Snap Misses Revenue Expectations And Struggles To Grow Its User Base
Instagram hit 250 million daily users for its Snapchat-copycat product, Instagram Stories, in June, up from 200 million in April. Not many major companies can make that claim. "Until they do, investors will likely continued to be disappointed".

"The sport of basketball continues to show remarkable growth internationally and we're excited to travel to London to play in front of the great fans there on January 11", said Sixers owner Josh Harris, who also has a stake in English soccer club Crystal Palace F.C. "Celtics president Danny Ainge coveted Tatum so much that one has to believe his future in Boston will be a bright one".

The NBA announced today that the Celtics will play an Atlantic Division game across the Atlantic.

"It's very exciting for our team and the whole Celtics organisation to compete in front of our loyal fans in London", said the point guard. If you're on a payment plan, you'll never even be charged for that game.

Tickets for the game will go on sale in October 2017.

The Sixers will be designated as the home team in the game, which will be broadcast locally on Comcast SportsNet and 97.5 The Fanatic.
