Basketball Hall of Fame London Showcase
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame re-announced today the field of teams for the Basketball Hall of Fame London Showcase, a one-of-a-kind college basketball double-header that will be held at The O2 on Sunday 4 December 2022.

Event Description

3:30 PM GMT / Maine vs Marist
6:00 PM GMT / Kentucky vs Michigan

The event will mark the first college basketball game ever played at The O2, which is renowned for being the world’s most popular music, leisure and entertainment venue.

Originally scheduled for December 2020 but postponed for concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the revamped event will be headlined by the University of Kentucky vs. University of Michigan at 6:00 p.m. London time/1:00 p.m. ET, with Marist College vs. University of Maine leading the festivities off at 3:30 p.m. London time/10:30 a.m. ET.

“The Basketball Hall of Fame is proud to celebrate the game on a global scale and we couldn’t be more excited to host four Division I men’s teams in London this December,” said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame.

“We were disappointed to postpone our event in 2020, but could not be more excited to get the inaugural games underway soon. The O2 is a beautiful, world-class venue and we expect many U.S.-based fans will make the trip to enjoy its amenities and support their teams abroad. We’re also looking forward to showcasing collegiate hoops to the local fans and growing the appreciation for basketball at all levels worldwide.”

“We are honoured to be hosting the Basketball Hall of Fame London Showcase at The O2 this December,” Gael Caselli, VP of Sports, AEG Europe commented.

“Fans from around the world will come to celebrate basketball and enjoy the excitement and experience of college basketball in our world class venue for the very first time, as we look forward to welcoming teams from Kentucky, Michigan, Marist and Maine as part of this inaugural event.”

The Basketball Hall of Fame London Showcase is one event in the Hall of Fame’s series of collegiate events, which continues to grow in an effort to celebrate the game outside the museum walls.
