Welcome to Victoria, the world’s sports and events capital, to see the Australian Boomers take on USA’s PAC-12 College All-Stars.

The PAC-12 College All-Stars hail from prestigious institutions such as Stanford University, University of Colorado, University of Arizona and University of California and will face the Boomers over two games.

Securing this Boomers’ series, combined with last year’s sell out FIBA Oceania Championship at Rod Laver Arena, shows that Victoria is the home of basketball in Australia.

Fans will also have a chance to farewell Australian NBA stars before they head off to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics.

The Victorian Government is proud to support this series. Our unrivalled calendar of national and international events contributes over $1.8 billion each year to the Victorian economy.

I encourage everyone to experience the best of everything that Victoria has to offer, from our vibrant world-class restaurants to the natural beauty of regional Victoria.
