The Ice Cube co-founded BIG3 has had an eventful offseason with the renewal of deals with CBS as a broadcast partner and with Monster Energy as a first-tier sponsor. Additionally, the league introduced a new ownership model ahead of the new season that leverages blockchain technology to offer NFTs that confer ownership-like benefits and privileges. This new paradigm for ownership has already lured in big names like Snoop Dogg and Gary Vaynerchuk, who both purchased equity stakes earlier this month.

“We have been working hard to build the league’s community and fanbase these last few months and it is exciting to see so many who want to be part of what we are creating here,” said BIG3 co-founder Jeff Kwatinetz in a release. “We are so excited to get back on the court next month and see what our players bring to the court and what our NFT owners bring to each team.”

Stay tuned for more details regarding the 2022 BIG3 schedule, including individual matchups and the postseason slate.
