NEW YORK (AP) — NBA regular-season games will be played next season in London and Mexico City.

The San Antonio Spurs are set to play the Minnesota Timberwolves at Mexico City Arena on Dec. 4, and the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets will meet at The O2 in London next Jan. 16.

The NBA said it’s the first time regular-season games in two countries outside of the United States and Canada will be played in the same season. In March, the league announced eight preseason games would be played in several countries from Oct. 5-18.

The latest games bring the NBA’s global package next season to 12 teams playing 10 regular-season and preseason games in 10 cities in seven countries and territories.
