The JobStreet.com Singapore Slingers, together with the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) and StarHub have finalised a deal that will see StarHub become the Official Broadcaster of the JobStreet.com Singapore Slingers for the 2013 ASEAN Basketball League season.
StarHub will broadcast all Singapore Slingers home games and selected away games on its pay TV, online and mobile platforms, bringing the Slingers to an unprecedented number of Singapore households across the island. It will also produce all home games for the season on its SuperSports Arena, a complimentary local sports channel available to over half a million StarHub TV households.
The ASEAN Basketball League is the first professional regional basketball league in SEA. Established in 2009, the league’s 2013 season sees six teams participating from six different countries – Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Sanctioned by the Southeast Asian Basketball Associations (SEABA) and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asia, the league holds a home-and-away playing format, where teams play each other four times in the elimination round.
“The ABL is delighted with the Slingers’ agreement with StarHub,” said Anthony Macri, Chief Executive Officer of the ASEAN Basketball League. “This relationship will give fans more access to the games and that is a great step in the ABL’s growth plan.”
The Singapore Slingers’ 2013 ABL campaign tipped-off last Sunday,13 January, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
