SlamBall is back, though most games will air on ESPN+.
As reported earlier this year, SlamBall is coming back (for its latest in a long line of reboots), and ESPN announced broadcast plans for the games on Wednesday.
Per a release, ESPN will air SlamBall’s opening night on Friday, July 21st at 7 PM ET. Most of the rest of the schedule, mostly taking place from Thursday through Sunday in July and August, will stream exclusively on ESPN+. However, some Thursday events will air on ESPN’s linear networks, including on July 27 (ESPN), August 3 (ESPN2), August 10 (ESPN2), and the August 17 championship game (ESPN2).
