The NBA has done a tremendous job marketing the league internationally over the last few decades. However, when you think of the NBA’s international presence, Mexico isn’t one of the first countries that come to mind.
The league is trying to change that. The Orlando Magic will be hosting two games in Mexico City, the third consecutive season that the NBA has held games in Mexico, with the Bulls being one of Orlando’s opponents.
The Bulls and Magic will play Dec. 13 in the NBA Mexico City Games 2018 at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico…Orlando will also play Utah in Mexico City on Dec. 15.

The Bulls have played preseason games in France, England, and Brazil in the past, but this will be the first time they play a regular season game outside of the United States or Canada.
The remainder of the NBA schedule will be released shortly, with opening week games along with Christmas Day and MLK Day games already announced.
