LOS ANGELES– June 1, 2017 – Champions Basketball League, a new professional summer basketball league made up of players straight out of the NBA, announced today an innovative new fan ownership opportunity for its Los Angeles team, the Los Angeles SuperStars. This ownership opportunity – a first of its kind for a pro team in California – allows fans to become owners of the Los Angeles SuperStars by investing in the team directly, creating an opportunity for fans to be actual team owners and to enjoy the many benefits of ownership. Interested fans can learn more about the ownership opportunity by visiting www.OwnLASuperStars.com.
The Los Angeles SuperStars are part of the Champions Basketball League, a professional summer league for players who have come out of the NBA. With teams nationwide based in major U.S. cities, the league will play its regular season games in July and August, with a championship tournament in Las Vegas in September. With more than 160 players, including many former NBA All-Stars, it will be the nation’s first professional league exclusively for players from the NBA, featuring the greatest basketball available in the months of July, August and September.
Team ownership includes exciting perks – owners get to attend practice for free, sit in the premium owners sections, make use of an owners-only door, attend team parties, receive discounts on special tickets, merchandise and parking, attend player meet and greets, be on management conference calls, and even get the chance to win the opportunity to be an assistant coach for a game. Owners can sit courtside and attend the hottest basketball events of the year, including an owners party with the team.
“After decades of involvement with the sport, it was obvious that fans wanted more opportunities to connect with the game,” said Mark Scoggins, L.A. SuperStars CEO and Western Region EVP. “So, we created the opportunity where fans could be owners, with the amazing perks ownership implies. This is actual ownership where fans become owners along with our founding team owners, so it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to be more connected than ever before to a professional sports team. Fans for the first time in L.A. history can enjoy all the special perks that only ownership can bring.”
