Four MBB Games to Air in Japan on J SPORTS
Feb. 5, 2018

SPOKANE, Wash. — Last Thursday’s game against San Diego was the first of four Gonzaga men’s basketball regular season games to air in Japan on J SPORTS.

In an agreement with ROOT SPORTS through Metta Sport, the games appear on both the television and over-the-top (OTT) platforms on one of the four J SPORTS channels to as many as 6.5 million households in Japan. J SPORTS is only available on either platform to subscribers in Japan.

“We want to thank our partners at ROOT SPORTS for their work on this agreement through Metta Sport to take our program international,” Gonzaga Director of Athletics Mike Roth said. “This is a great step for the continued growth and exposure for Gonzaga basketball worldwide.”

The first two games, including Feb. 1 vs. San Diego and Feb. 8 at Pacific, air on tape delay. The final two games of the agreement, Feb. 15 vs. Loyola Marymount and Feb. 17 vs. Pepperdine, will air live on J SPORTS.

Gonzaga, ranked No. 12 in the Associated Press poll, is 21-4 on the season, including an 11-1 mark in the West Coast Conference.
