As part of the NBA's Global Games Initiatives, the Celtics will play their first regular-season game in Europe this season - with Boston set to battle the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA London Game 2018 at the O2 Arena on January 11. "The NBA has done an exceptional job of attracting and cultivating fans from across the world, and we're thrilled to bring the Philadelphia 76ers to London, a special city with rich culture and tradition".

"Participating in NBA London Game 2018 is a great opportunity for our players to compete in front of an worldwide audience at the historic O2 Arena". However, this will be their first time in London.

The NBA announced Philadelphia will play the Boston Celtics in London at O2 Arena on January 11.

The Celtics have always been a staple of the National Basketball Association, and now is a great time to use them to bring in more fans from the outside.

The matchup will allow United Kingdom fans to get an up-close look at one of the NBA's most exciting young teams in the Sixers - featuring Australia's Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz - and a Boston squad led by Isaiah Thomas that finished the 2016-17 regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference.

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

The O2 Arena will be the site for the matchup, and it is a premier venue in London. "Celtics president Danny Ainge coveted Tatum so much that one has to believe his future in Boston will be a bright one".

As part of the NBA Global Games initiative, London first hosted a game during the 2007-08 preseason when the Celtics defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves. Tickets will go on sale in October.

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.
