Learn about the Canadian Basketball League (CBL)!
The Canadian Basketball League is a professional basketball league founded in Toronto Canada on July 30, 2014. CBL teams play by Fiba rules. (INTERNATIONAL BASKETBALL FEDERATION) CBL franchises play in Canadian basketball arenas with average seating capacity of 2000 Seats. Franchise teams are required to play in communities with a population base of over 300,000 people. The long term goal of the Canadian Basketball League is to be a development league for younger players. With over 250 Canadian players not playing in Canada it is an ideal time to nationalize professional basketball similar to Europe (Euro League). The success of the Canadian Basketball League is directly related to Canadian content requirements in it’s bylaws and collective bargaining agreement. Canada is the largest country in the world that does not have a professional basketball league to support it’s national team.
