Perth to host Games 1 & 2 of 2021 NBL Grand Final Series
Hungry Jack's NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said: "In order to play the best of five Grand Final series with minimal interruption, the first two games will need to be played in Perth, regardless of the Wildcats’ opponent. This is due to the fact that as soon as any of the Grand Final teams enter Victoria, under the current settings, they cannot re-enter Western Australia without having to quarantine.
“The teams involved have been incredibly cooperative and have each agreed to the terms of the altered Grand Final schedule. We are very grateful to them for their understanding and flexibility which allows everyone to make the best of a very challenging situation, whilst also acknowledging that everyone is making compromises."
The Wildcats’ opponent in the Grand Final will be determined on Tuesday night when Melbourne plays South East Melbourne in game three of their semi-finals series. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN, SBS VICELAND, SBS On Demand, Sky Sport and Twitch from 7:30pm AEST.
