Between 1990 and 2003, the NBA staged 12 regular-season games in Japan in Saitama City, Tokyo and Yokohama.  The match-up between the Phoenix Suns and the Utah Jazz in Tokyo on Nov. 2, 1990 marked the first regular-season game played outside of North America by a U.S. sports league. 

The Rockets, who previously visited Japan in 1992 when they played two regular-season opening games in Yokohama, currentlyfeature 2018 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player James Harden, nine-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul, and 2017 NBA Sixth Man of the Year Eric Gordon.  The Raptors, who will be making their first visit to Japan, are currently led by 2014 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, five-time NBA All-Star Kyle Lowry, and three-time NBA All-Star Marc Gasol. 

The NBA Japan Games 2019 Presented by Rakuten will be supported by a roster of marketing and merchandising partners.  The games will be distributed live in Japan by Rakuten and will reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories on television, digital and social media.  In addition to the games, the league and its partners will conduct interactive fan activities and NBA Cares community outreach events that will bring the NBA experience to fans in Japan.

The NBA and Rakuten announced a groundbreaking partnership in 2017 when Rakuten became a global marketing partner of the NBA and the league’s exclusive distribution partner in Japan for all live NBA games.  Rakuten TV, Rakuten’s video-on-demand service, currently offers viewers in Japan exclusive access to the 2018-19 NBA season games through its all-access subscription service, Rakuten NBA Special.  Additionally, Rakuten operates the NBA Zone on its internet shopping mall Rakuten Ichiba, featuring select NBA and team merchandise.

The NBA’s presence in Japan dates back almost 30 years.  NBA games and programming have been on-the-air in Japan since the 1988-89 season, and officially licensed NBA merchandise is widely available at more than 180 Xebio stores across Japan and throughNBAStore.jp, the official online NBA store in Japan.  In addition to live games, the league has conducted a number of events in Japan, including interactive fan events, NBA Cares community outreach initiatives, and in 2012, Basketball Without Borders, the NBA and FIBA’s global basketball development and community outreach program.
