NBA Kenya Office Opens

NBA Kenya Office Opens

The NBA continues to expand its International Operations with the office opening of NBA Kenya in Nairobi, the third opening across the continent in less than two years, following NBA Nigeria in 2022 and NBA Egypt earlier this year. To celebrate the office opening, NBA Africa held a Jr. NBA clinic for 70 boys and girls ages 16 and under in Nairobi, in the presence of five-time NBA champion Ron Harper, NBA Africa CEO Victor Williams, Basketball Africa League President Amadou Gallo Fall, and Finley.


“The launch of our office in Nairobi reflects the enormous potential for basketball and the NBA in Kenya and across East Africa,” said Williams.  “Basketball is one of the most popular team sports among Kenyan youth, and having a year-round presence on the ground will allow us to work more closely with local stakeholders to further grow the game here and make it more accessible to fans and players across the country.”


Additionally, NBA Africa, Stanbic Bank, and the Luol Deng Foundation unveiled a beautiful new court and announced in Juba that the first Jr. NBA League will tip off in early 2024. This collaboration will impact the lives of thousands in South Sudan and will build on the groundbreaking efforts of Luol Deng, who led the world’s newest country to a berth in next year’s Olympics. South Sudan Vice President Rebecca Nyandeng attended and has been a keen supporter of our efforts.
