Boomers vs USA comes to Melbourne @ Etihad Stadium 2019

The matches will be played at Etihad Stadium on Thursday 22 August and Saturday 24 August 2019 as part of both nations’ planned preparations for the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, starting 31 August.

“This is the one Australian basketball fans have been waiting for, and there’s no better place to host the USA team than in the sporting capital of the country – Victoria,” said Premier Andrews.

The Victorian Minister for Tourism and Major Events John Eren said: “This blockbuster series is exclusive to Melbourne, Australia and will not only inspire our young athletes to hit the court but attract fans from interstate and overseas – and that’s good news for Victorian jobs, businesses and the economy.”

“We’re proud to back the talent of tomorrow by delivering the courts and pathways our kids need to make it to the big leagues.”

Fans can register their interest in buying tickets to the Boomers v USA matches ahead of the ticket on sale in July. A limited number of corporate hospitality packages are on sale now
