Triple Crown Sports has a big deal coming.
The NBA announced it will host a triple crown in the coming years, with the league announcing its first-ever Triple Crown Series, a four-team, two-year series featuring a four member conference with the NBA, NBA/NBL, WNBA and NBA All-Star games and the Triple Crown.
In addition to the Triple-Crown Series, the NBA will also be holding its annual All-Stars Game on Jan. 6, 2018 in Houston.
And now, there’s another chance to get your tickets.
The NBA has teamed up with the National Basketball Players Association to offer players and coaches in the league the opportunity to play in the NBA All Star Game.
Players and coaches will be able to participate in the All Star Challenge with up to 40 teams, with each team having the opportunity of playing four games.
Players who want to attend can register at the NBA’s website, and players and/or coaches can register by calling 1-800-BEL-NOAA.
The league is also partnering with the Big Ten Conference to hold a Triple-Star Challenge.
The league is offering two tickets, which can be purchased for $300 each, for each of the 10 teams in the Big 10 Conference that are participating in the 2018-19 Big Ten Tournament.
The Big Ten and NBA announced the tournament earlier this week, and will feature 10 teams from the Big 12, Big Ten Networks, Big East Networks and Big Ten Network members, including Indiana and Rutgers.
The Big 10 Tournament will be played in Omaha, Nebraska on March 16-17.
The first two games will be held on March 12-13, 2018, and the last two games on March 21-22, 2018.
NBA All Star Games will also air on the Big 3 Network, with both games on the same day.
