Kings to play on Christmas Day?
Interesting idea. Don't mind it at all to be honest.
"The Sydney Kings want to become the first Australian sporting franchise to stage a fixture on Christmas Day.
There has been a long tradition of sporting events being held on Boxing Day, most notably the Melbourne cricket Test and the Sydney-to-Hobart yacht race. However, December 25 remains a day on the calendar that still remains free of sporting activity.
The Kings, however, want to change that. They will host Melbourne United at Qudos Bank Arena this Boxing Day in what they hope will be a precursor to finally staging the country's first Christmas Day clash the following season.
"It’s one of the last bits of uncharted territory in Australian sport," Kings chairman and owner Paul Smith told the Herald. “We really want to do it, we’d love to do it.""
