The Champions Basketball League is the hot new 5-on-5, full court, pro summer basketball league featuring players you already know and love because all they’re straight out of the NBA. That’s right: every single player in our league has NBA experience. They’ve already proven their greatness, and now they’re wearing Champions Basketball League jerseys.
Our inaugural, sports history-changing season begins in July of 2017. With over 150 players who all made the NBA, 16 teams will battle it out on the hardwood each July and August, leading to an epic college-style, winner-take-all, million dollar championship tournament in September.
Thanks to Champions, great basketball will be available to watch all year long instead of just during the NBA season. And our tickets will be incredibly affordable – bring your entire family – and our games the most fan-friendly in sports.
We’ll also have game-changing fan interaction and community events. Read on.
SPORTS AT THE SERVICE OF THE COMMUNITY
Community is the cornerstone of Champions. Our teams will bring sports and community together. In addition to world-class summer basketball we will host year-round charity events, camps and community-based programs across the country. Champions will proudly connect fans and athletes through this bold opportunity.
Every player in our league has committed to serving their community. These guys have seen and done it all. They made the NBA. They achieved their dreams. With Champions, they continue as pro players, while making the world a better place all year long. Champions Basketball League members will serve communities they grew up in, their college and pro team towns, and more. They’re on board, enthusiastic, excited, and you’ll reap the benefits. Champions aims to create great memories both on and off the court. We welcome the opportunity. You’ll be proud to be a fan.
Leadership from Champions League teams will empower community youth and their parents, teach lessons about nutrition and general well-being, good sportsmanship, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Feeling like a Champion yet? You soon will!
