The Hungry Jack’s NBL Grand Final series between the Sydney Kings and Tasmania JackJumpers made a viewership increase by 133% from last year.  

Broadcasted on ESPN the finals series significantly surpassed last year’s finals contest between Melbourne United and the Perth Wildcats. 

NBL commissioner, Jeremy Loeliger, said: “Despite another year of challenges, the NBL strengthened its position on the Australian sporting landscape.”

“We can’t thank our fans enough for their loyalty over the past two years. 

“Increased ratings for the Grand Final series and throughout the entire season, plus strong attendances, showed significant growth of our fanbase with a new wave of supporters now following the League.

“We thank ESPN, and all our media partners, for their terrific promotion and coverage this season, and for their flexibility through the early months of fixture disruption.  

“We also thank our clubs, players, officials, volunteers and corporate partners for making this season a record-breaking one in so many ways.

Loeliger continued: “We now turn our attention to what will be an intriguing few months as teams re-shape their squads and begin preparations for next season, which is set to begin in late September, early October.”
