The NBA announced Wednesday its plans to have the Orlando Magic face the Toronto Raptors in London this January 14th as part of the NBA Global Games 2016. The game will mark the NBA's sixth ever played in London.

The Magic haven't visited London since 1993, when they played two exhibition games there. Meanwhile, the more cosmopolitan Raptors played two games in London in 2011, marking the first time the NBA hosted a regular-season game in Europe.

Tickets for the Magic's overseas tilt against Toronto will go on sale at the beginning of the 2015/16 regular season. Fans can gain register for presale opportunities by visiting NBA All-Access.

The Magic have previously played exhibitions in China (2007) and Mexico City (2012).
