Joshua Duboff Question for Liam Bednarski

Liam Bednarski:

@joshuaduboff We have established a global academy in conjunction with the NBA, USA Basketball is playing two games at Marvel Stadium in August of 2019 against The Boomers.

I'm sure there is much more in the pipeline, Larry Kestelman is doing a great job with the NBL as well.

In terms of my role, we are continuing to work on ensuring our data is well structured to enable our marketing team to capitalise on the visit of Basketball USA in 2019.
