All 52 games of the competition will be televised and streamed.

FanDuel TV, a digital cable and satellite television network owned by FanDuel Group, has been announced as the official broadcasting partner in the US of the Basketball Champions League Americas (BCL Americas). 

FanDuel TV was launched in August 2022, with several offerings, including former NFL Network host, Kay Adams, launching a new morning program. 

The network has featured many other sporting-related shows including an NBA show called ‘Run it Back,’ featuring news and commentary for sports fans, and even featuring live horseracing content leading up to the Kentucky Derby earlier this year. 

Now, it has secured this deal with the BCL Americas, with the agreement seeing FanDuel TV televise and stream all 52 games of the basketball competition on a variety of FanDuel TV platforms. 

This edition of the tournament has the participation of 12 teams from seven different countries in the region. 

Fans will be able to watch games on FanDuel’s linear cable network, its OTT platform and streaming on the FanDuel Sportsbook. 

Executive Director for FIBA (International Basketball Federation) in the Americas, Carlos Alves, said: “We are very honored and excited with the potential of this partnership. FanDuel is a strong brand in the US for sports, fantasy sports & online sportsbook which will allow for BCL Americas to tap into new audiences and opportunities.” 

In other news related both to FanDuel and basketball, last month, the operator in partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced a new game called NBA Swish Showdown offering the chance to win real money.
