 WINDY CITY BULLS PARTNER WITH NBC SPORTS CHICAGO TO BROADCAST 17 HOME GAMES DURING 2018-19 REGULAR SEASON

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – The Windy City Bulls, presented by BMO Harris Bank, the official NBA G League affiliate of the Chicago Bulls, today announced a new television broadcast agreement with NBC Sports Chicago that includes 17 home games from the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates airing on the regional sports network during the team’s 2018-19 regular season.

The local broadcast partnership is a first for Windy City, which is entering its third season, and will provide the team and league exposure to 4.2 million households throughout Illinois, Iowa and Northern Indiana where NBC Sports Chicago is carried.

“This partnership represents a large step forward for our franchise as we prepare for our third season and continue to work to grow awareness and show our community, and the region, the game experience that we offer, both on and off the court,” said Windy City Bulls President Brad Seymour. “While this is a great opportunity for our team, it also represents a larger opportunity to showcase the NBA G League throughout the Midwest and create a broader understanding of the rapid growth and development the circuit continues to enjoy.”

12 Windy City games will air live on NBC Sports Chicago and its sister station, NBC Sports Chicago Plus, while five games will be shown on tape-delay. Each game will be re-broadcast at least once within 24 hours of airing and all scheduled broadcasts will also be available via an authenticated stream at NBCSportsChicago.com/WatchLive.

Windy City’s home and road games will continue to be broadcast via the NBA G League’s official online streaming platforms.

NBC Sports Chicago is a member of the national family of NBC’s Regional Sports Networks and has been a broadcast partner of the Chicago Bulls since its launch in 2004.

Windy City joins eight other teams in the NBA G League with games shown on regional sports networks. The complete Windy City broadcast schedule for the 2018-19 season is as follows:
