“The BIG3 is coming in hotter than ever for season seven,” said BIG3 CEO and co-founder, Ice Cube. “4-point shots, no garbage minutes, and players actually playing defense – everyone knows you can only get that in the BIG3. This season is about what the BIG3 has always been about, our players, our fans, and innovating the game. We’re going to have hotter players, debut in new cities, and continue to bring the premier global FIREBALL3 and entertainment experience to basketball fans across the country all summer long.”

Season six saw the league’s much-anticipated return to cities such as Detroit and Boston, concluding with the league’s first appearance in Europe at London’s iconic O2 arena for the 2023 BIG3 Championship Game, Celebrity Game, and All-Star Game – which featured three-time NBA All-Star Jaylen Brown. A fiery matchup between Lisa Leslie’s Triplets and Nick Young’s Enemies ended with a three-point shot by Jordan Crawford that secured the Enemies’ first-ever BIG3 Championship title.

This announcement is the latest in a series of strategic offseason moves. Last month, the league announced its partnership with X to broadcast live games, exclusive content, and behind-the-scenes access. Earlier this year, seasoned sports and brand executive Mark King joined the BIG3 Board of Directors. Ice Cube was also honored at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, where he received the inaugural Ice Cube Impact Award, acknowledging individuals making substantial contributions to their community through basketball.
