CBA captures partnership with Osports

The Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) has announced a three-year agreement with sports photo agency Osports Media.

The media company is to be the league’s official image partner, taking and distributing photos of CBA matches, training, and activities.

Additionally, Osports will be responsible for group photos of CBA clubs and CBA player portraits from the start of the 2017/18 season on 21st October.

The financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

The photo brand previously partnered the CBA, the Women’s Chinese Basketball Association and the Chinese national basketball team for five years but was replaced by Chinese photo company Visual China Group, which signed a two-year agreement with the league in 2015.

Osports is currently an official image provider for several Chinese basketball clubs, including Beijing Ducks, Zhejiang Guangsha, Liaoning Flying Leopards and Shenzhen Leopards, and a partner of Chinese Super League (CSL) soccer clubs Changchun Yatai, Shanghai SIPG, Hebei China Fortune, Liaoning Hongyun and Luneng Taishan.
