After eight sold-out fixtures, regular season NBA London game returns to the iconic O2 Arena, as the Washington Wizards will take on the New York Knicks on January 17, 2019. Judging by the success of previous London fixtures, this year promises to be one of the best for the UK game series.
The first regular-season NBA London game took place in March 2011. Since then, the New York Knicks have visited London twice, while the Washington Wizards will be making their UK-debut. Spectators will be expecting a thrilling encounter akin to last year when the Boston Celtics claimed victory after coming back from 22 points down against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Luggage Storage at the 2019 NBA London Game
Visitors should be cautious about bringing their stuff into the O2 Arena, as their rules are pretty strict regarding luggage storage. There are no left luggage lockers or cloakrooms at the O2.
You can bring with you a small bag (up to 35x40x19cm) that can be tucked under your seat, but if you are carrying larger bags, you will be asked to store them in bag storage area by the car park that closes 30 minutes after the end of the event. Also, if they’re full, you might get turned away.
