LONDON — The Nuggets will be heading to London for one game this season, the league announced on Thursday.

The Nuggets will take on the Indiana Pacers during a regular-season game on Jan. 12 at The O2 Arena.

Although it’s the NBA’s seventh game in London, it will be the Nuggets’ first trip overseas. The Nuggets will be the first Western Conference team to make the trip across the pond, according to Yahoo Sports.

“It will be a true honor and a great experience to represent both the Nuggets and the NBA in London as part of the NBA Global Games in 2017,” Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari said in a statement. “Our entire team and organization are looking forward to this opportunity to showcase our league to fans overseas.”

Tickets for the games go on sale at the start of the 2016-17 NBA season.
