Eleven Italy adds Dunk League

May 11, 2022

Eleven Italy will be enhancing their offering of live basketball with Team Whistle’s Dunk League series.

Eleven already brings live coverage of the EuroLeague and EuroCup to Italian basketball fans, and has secured the rights to the men’s and women’s FIBA Basketball world cups over the next couple of years.

The platform will now be adding Dunk League to sit alongside its slate of live programming. Dunk League was created by the Eleven Group’s Team Whistle arm, and showcases the best street basketball players and dunkers in the game.

Giovanni Zurleni, Eleven Italy MD, commented: “By welcoming Team Whistle into the Eleven Group last year, we now have access to a fantastic collection of original programming to complement our live offering. Whistle’s Dunk League format is a great addition to our live basketball coverage and gives Eleven Italy an exciting new way to engage basketball fans across Italy.”

Joe Caporoso, President at Team Whistle, added: “Dunk League is the most unique dunk competition available on social media right now, and we are thrilled that Eleven is bringing it to Italian fans. We are just at the start of Whistle and Eleven integrating our content capabilities together, and I’m looking forward to much more to come!”
