The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) today announced the six teams that will compete in next year's inaugural season in addition to key leadership appointments to establish this new professional basketball league. The CEBL will begin its first season in May 2019 and will run a 20-game regular season schedule, in addition to playoffs and championship series in August 2019.
New pro basketball teams in Edmonton, Alberta, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and Hamilton, Ontario will join previously announced teams in Niagara, Ontario, Guelph, Ontario, and Fraser Valley, B.C. for the 2019 season. Each team will have a 12-player roster and will play 10 home and 10 away games during the summer season.
The CEBL also announced that business executive and veteran CFL pro football player Mike Morreale has been appointed CEO. Following his CFL career, Morreale served as the President of the CFL Players' Association, and as a senior executive in the Canadian business community. For the past year Morreale has been developing the league's inaugural season and recruiting a team of basketball and sports marketing experts to staff CEBL's front office.
'I am delighted to confirm our first six teams that will tip off one year from now in Canada's newest pro basketball league next summer,' said Morreale. 'With basketball surging in popularity in Canada we focused on communities that are rich in grassroots community fan support and share a passion for fast-paced action.'
According to the Canadian Youth Sports Report basketball is the second most popular team sport among new Canadian youth, next to soccer.1 This year, for the second straight season basketball players from Canada were the largest representation in the NBA from outside of the U.S.
'It's always a great thing when more people are able to play basketball in Canada. I applaud the efforts made by the Canadian Elite Basketball League," said Michele O'Keefe, President and CEO, Canada Basketball.
