The CEBL will be filling the void that is a lack of professional basketball content in the spring and summer months. The game of basketball is played by many Canadians on outdoor courts throughout the spring and summer, so why not invite fans indoors for CEBL events? At each CEBL event, fans can expect to be entertained by a high-level of basketball competition, exciting in-game promotions and outdoor activations for all ages to enjoy.
Further announcements regarding the league’s inaugural season start date will be released in the coming months.
The CEBL is currently entertaining ownership bids and recruiting teams within markets all across Canada. Be sure to stay tuned for new territory announcements on the CEBL’s social media and web platforms. For more info, check out our Fan Page
