I am delighted that, by joining forces with the Pro Basketball League, Proximus can offer all its basketball fans the best that Belgium has to offer in this area. We are also proud to contribute to increasing the popularity of basketball in Belgium by hosting this competition on our Proximus Sport channel and making it available via all devices (Mobile, PC and TV). This partnership is perfectly in line with our ambition to offer content with a strong local presence. In addition, this offer will delight our basketball fans even more as it is very complementary to the NBA offer we already have on the Eleven Sports channels.


Arthur Goethals, President of the Pro Basketball League

We are very happy to have concluded this agreement with Proximus for the next three seasons. As a league, our aim is to increase the popularity of basketball in Belgium. Therefore, we need to have a strong, high-quality presence in new and conventional media. After concluding agreements with private and public operators, this contract is another step in the right direction.
