When the BIG3 tips off the 2018 season they will be doing so with an assist from social media. Starting with the season opener in Houston on June 22, one game per week will stream live on Facebook Watch each Friday in the U.S.
Each week, a game will stream live exclusively on Facebook, leading in to three additional games which will air exclusively on FOX or FS1 (simulcast live in the FOX Sports app) during the regular season and playoffs.
For the first nine weeks of the season, fans can be a part of the action on Friday nights by viewing on Facebook, and continuing to watch on the FOX Sports app. In addition to getting exclusive live access to nine games this summer, fans on Facebook will be treated to highlight packages and game recaps for all 37 games, including the championship in Brooklyn on August 24. Fans can add this content to their Watchlists by following the BIG3 on FOX Facebook Page.
The first BIG3 game to stream on Facebook will feature a match-up between 2017 BIG3 MVP Rashard Lewis’ 3 Headed Monsters and Mike Bibby’s Ghost Ballers on June 22 from Houston, TX, followed by Chauncey Billups’ Killer 3’s and Dermarr Johnson’s 3’s Company; Corey Maggette’s Power and Brian Scalabrine’s Ball Hogs; and Kenyon Martin’s Trilogy and Jermaine O’Neal’s Tri-State on FS1.
The BIG3’s ten-week season opens in Houston, TX on June 22 and makes its way to Chicago, Oakland, Detroit, Miami, Toronto, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas and Brooklyn. All stops will feature four back-to-back games on Friday evenings with star players like Amar’e Stoudemire, Baron Davis, Kenyon Martin, Stephen Jackson, Chauncey Billups, Metta World Peace, and Nate Robinson and legendary Hall of Fame coaches like Julius ‘Dr. J’ Erving, Gary Payton, Nancy Lieberman and George ‘The Iceman’ Gervin.
