The Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons will play a regular-season NBA game in Paris next season.

The game will be played at Accor Arena on Jan. 19, 2023.

The contest will mark the first NBA game in Europe since 2020 and the league’s 12th game in France since 1991. The first regular-season NBA game in Paris took place Jan. 24, 2020, and featured the Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks.

It will be the Bulls’ third time playing in Paris; they played two preseason games in the French capital in 1997.

The Pistons will be playing their first game in France, having previously played regular-season games in London (2013) and Mexico City (2019).
