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.
