beIN SPORTS to broadcast the tournament LIVE through its Asia-Pacific footprint

October 4, 2018. Sina Sports announced today that it has reached an agreement with beIN SPORTS as its pan-regional broadcaster to bring the 2018 Sina Sports 3x3 Golden League Finals to a wider audience in the Asia Pacific region.

The 3x3 Golden League is the largest mass participation 3x3 basketball tournament in the world with over 64,000 participants from 82 cities in China. After 6 months of competition, 30 men's city champions and 10 women's city champions qualified for the 2018 Sina Sports 3x3 Golden League Finals, which will take place on October 7-9 in Beijing, China.

Through this agreement with beIN SPORTS, Sina 3X3 Golden League became the first mass participation event in China to reach an international audience on a large scale. The agreement will further enhance and develop the 3x3 Golden League brand internationally. The 3x3 Golden League will be broadcast live on beIN SPORTS channels in Asia Pacific to subscribers in 12 territories including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Timor Leste and Singapore.

The broadcast deal was brokered by Mediapro Asia, part of the MediaPro Group, a leading global communications and production company and sports media giant in Spain. Earlier this year, Sina Sports appointed Mediapro Asia as the long-term exclusive media rights agency and commercial rights agency of the 3x3 Golden League.

Sina Sports also announced the opening of official 3x3 Golden League accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram which will feature year-round game highlights, player profiles, interviews, and other short-form video content to attract more international audience to the tournament.
