2K today announced a new partnership with the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE).

The move means 2K will sponsor the “Friday Night Live” youth basketball program at NCIE. The first 2K-sponsored event takes place this Friday, 28 July in Redfern, Sydney.

“Australian consumers are some of our most passionate fans. We’ve already given them the Boomers in NBA 2K17, now it’s time to give something back to the community,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K.
