NBA – Paris Global Games


Paris, 24 January 2020. The ultra-prestigious NBA Paris Game 2020 pitted the Milwaukee Bucks against the Charlotte Hornets at the heart of the French capital. The Paris-based event was announced last spring by Adam Silver, the head of the very famous North-American league, in person: “We are looking forward to assembling basketball fans from all over the continent for the first regular NBA game of the season in Paris.” The event sold out at the AccorHotels Arena. The popularity and influence of basketball and the NBA are increasing all over the world... It is now clear that the League leads the trends and sets the pace for the sport. Tissot – the Official Chronometer of the NBA and the special partner of players Klay Thompson, Trae Young and Tony Parker – is aware of this, and it is accompanying the movement.

For this exceptional event, Tissot had the immense joy of featuring its emblematic ambassador, Tony Parker, alongside François Thiébaud, President of Tissot, at a press conference that was held just a few hours before the now historic match got kicked off.
