Bunbury will host nine-time National Basketball League (NBL) Champions, the Perth Wildcats for a pre-season clash against the Adelaide 36ers next month.
The match-up at the South West Sports Centre on Friday 6 September is part of the Wildcats pre-season schedule in preparation for the team’s season opener against Melbourne United on Saturday 5 October.
Tip-off for the game will be 6:30pm.
With highly talented imports Bryce Cotton and Terrico White returning this season, the Wildcats will be looking to gather early momentum in a bid to defend their 2018/19 NBL title.
The Wildcats will also be hosting two Community Clinics on the Saturday following the match at the South West Sports Centre as part of their visit to the South West.
Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan was thrilled to have both the reigning champions and Adelaide in town next month.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to host two world class organisations in our City.
"It’s great for our local fans and young people to see the athletes up close and to be able to get involved with the clinics."
The Wildcats sustained success is highlighted by their Australian sporting record of 33 straight post-season appearances, dating back to 1987.
