Kylian Mbappé signs a deal with the NBA

This Thursday, Kylian Mbappé was in New York to attend the NBA Draft – and show us his American accent. The player from PSG and the France team had a ringside seat to see Paolo Banchero being chosen in first position by the Orlando Magic. But that wasn’t the only reason for his presence in the Big Apple. The French international took advantage of this evening to formalize the partnership between Zebra Valley, his newly created production company, and the NBA.

The two entities signed an agreement “multi-annual around the creation of content in order to mobilize fans around the world”, the statement said. With this partnership, Mbappé wants “bringing together football and basket fans around premium content by telling stories that matter”.

On the side of the North American League, we are delighted with this alliance with the 2018 world champion, proof, according to the leader George Aivazoglou, “of the global appeal of NBA basketball and the convergence of the league, the global football community and popular culture”.
