The NBA will stage two preseason games in Abu Dhabi next year, bringing the league to play for the first time in the Persian Gulf.

The matches will be played in October 2022. The dates or teams involved were not announced.

NBA has not been able to take the preseason out of United States and Canada due to the coronavirus pandemic, although the league had indicated in recent months that it had a goal of returning abroad in 2022.

“Abu Dhabi is a multicultural center and it has proven that it can host world-class sporting events. “said NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum, who traveled to Abu Dhabi to sign the league’s multi-year agreement with local tourism authorities.
