Basketball ACT is excited to announce a new partner, and naming rights sponsor to the family.

Basketball ACT and Molten, through their Australian distributor, Madison Sport, the Official Ball Partner of FIBA, has signed a multi-year agreement to be Official Ball Supplier, joining other state associations including Basketball Qld, Basketball SA and Basketball Tasmania.  The exciting and dynamic partnership will see Molten supply Basketball ACT branded basketballs, as well as quality Molten balls for competitions.

The agreement, which runs from 2023 to 2025, will also see Molten become the naming rights sponsor of Basketball ACT’s Junior Premier League.  The Molten Junior Premier League is contested across age groups Under 12’s through to Under 19’s and features numerous ACT junior performance and development program representative players.

When discussing the new partnership with Molten, Basketball ACT’s Chief Executive Officer, David Simpson said, “The opportunity to partner with Molten, who are the Official Ball Partner of FIBA, will ensure our clubs and players use a world class product on court.  Basketball ACT is looking forward to working with Molten to produce basketballs that are truly unique to our association.”

“To also have Molten become naming rights sponsor of the Molten Junior Premier League is massive recognition of Basketball ACT’s junior competition structure and the long-term goals we have in supporting junior athletes to compete at the highest level.  We know all our players will be as excited as we are.”

Scott Besson of Madison Sport said “Molten and Madison Sport are thrilled to be partnering with Basketball ACT. The sport is continuing to grow at a rapid pace across Australia after the success of the 2022 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in Sydney. We’re proud to add Basketball ACT as a partner and we hope that we can assist the growth of basketball across the ACT”.

Basketball ACT branded Molten basketballs will be available in late January 2023.  You can check the full range of Molten basketballs at or by clicking the Store tab on Basketball ACT’s website.
