Rumble the Bison comes to Spain


OKLAHOMA City Thunder mascot Rumble the Bison arrived in Alicante this week to support the league’s international efforts.

As part of NBAforU Day, Rumble will attend the launch of a refurbished court and visit a children’s clinic. Rumble will also attend NBA Fan Zone expos and other local events while in Spain.

Rumble’s previous international trips have included appearances in Toronto, Denmark, Istanbul and Manchester. Last summer, Rumble visited Barcelona and Madrid ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s participation in the NBA Global Games Europe 2016.

‘We are excited to have Rumble represent our team, our fans and the state of Oklahoma in Spain once again,’ said Brian Byrnes, Thunder senior vice president of Sales and Marketing. ‘We are honoured by the opportunity to connect with fans in Spain who have displayed tremendous support and a passion for the NBA and Thunder Basketball.’

Rumble will be in Spain until Monday June 19.
