IMG ARENA signs long term extension with Brazilian Liga Nacional de Basquete

IMG ARENA has secured a six-season extension to its globallive streaming partnership with the Brazilian Liga Nacional de Basquete (LNB).  

The deal covers an increased number of NBB matches and the Copa Super 8. 

Launched in December 2008, the LNB brought together the top tiers of Brazilian professional basketball teams in an effort to make basketball the second most popular sport in Brazil, behind soccer. 

Freddie Longe, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of IMG ARENA, said: “We are delighted to be extending our partnership with the LNB and to stream a growing number of NBB matches across the globe. 

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world and our investment in one of the world’s fastest growing basketball leagues demonstrates our commitment to ensuring high quality content for our sportsbook customers. 

Nilo Guimarães, President of LNB, said: We take great pleasure in announcing the renewal of the partnership in such a difficult and challenging moment for the entire society. 

The vote of trust received by IMG ARENA, the leading provider to the sports betting industry indicates that NBB has been delivering, year-on- year, a more solid and relevant product within the sports business. These are the results of an innovative initiative created with IMG ARENA three years ago.
