In an effort to provide Canadian basketball stars the opportunity to play at an elite level, the CEBL will ensure Canadian players make up a large part of team rosters. According to Francis, Canada continues to develop some phenomenal basketball players. 'We have 13 players in the NBA and many more on their way who are currently playing in the NCAA and U Sports,' said Francis. Many of our home-grown talents head to Europe to find elite basketball competition in the summer but now they will have an opportunity to play here in their own backyard with other international stars,' he added.

NAME THE TEAM - COMMUNITY OUTREACH

As part of its community outreach, the CEBL will enlist fan support to develop a name for each respective team. In addition, the CEBL will work closely with the teams to develop grassroots community initiatives that will be announced later this Summer.

NEW BASKETBALL EXPERIENCE - #HOLDCOURT CAMPAIGN LAUNCH CREATIVE

Launch campaign creative is a nod to the full experience CEBL will be providing Canadian basketball fans.
An emblem on top of a court features an athlete, a DJ, cheerleader and food icons. CEBL fans will discover that these are not just basketball games they are a full entertainment experience that starts well before tip-off, where fans can come together to experience local food vendors and their community. DJ's will be playing music that's integrated into game play in a way that's never been done before -- throughout the entire game. Local cheerleading squads and talent showcased between game play rounds out the offering, creating a new family-friendly experience for Canadian fans and players alike. Colours are a nod to the beautiful summer days and nights the league will be active.
