BASKETBALL Victoria has hosted all 18 foundation licence-holders for the inaugural Victorian-managed Senior Elite League Forum.
With the league set to tip off for the first time in 2019, Basketball Victoria brought together leaders from all licence-holders on Saturday to discuss the inaugural season.
The name and branding of the new league is expected to be announced later this year, with commercial discussions still underway.
The league can confirm some details ahead of the official announcement later this month, with the inaugural season set to tip off 29 March.
This will usher in the start of a 15-round season, including a Top-8 finals series consisting of single game finals and a Championship Game held 17 August at the State Basketball Centre, Wantirna South.
Every game throughout the league will be live-streamed, including a multi camera Game of the Week.
Basketball Victoria’s Senior Elite League Manager Dean Anglin said the forum – which included all Victorian and Tasmanian licence-holders – showcased the energy and excitement heading in to the first season.
“It’s important to provide clear direction as we strive to deliver an exciting product for the basketball community. We look forward to working together with all the clubs, and we will release further strategic details for 2019 in the coming weeks” Anglin said.
Basketball Victoria will work closely with all 18 foundation licence holders to ensure the stability and success of the league going forward.
