Abbotsford – Fans of professional basketball across Canada will have their first opportunity to purchase season tickets for the inaugural season of the Canadian Elite Basketball League when they go on sale Thursday, November 15 at 10 a.m. at www.ticketmaster.ca. Canada’s newest major sports brand tips off the 2019 regular season in May with teams in Edmonton, Hamilton, Guelph, Niagara (St. Catharines), Saskatchewan (Saskatoon), and Fraser Valley (Abbotsford).
With a heavy emphasis on an array of entertainment before, during, and after games, the CEBL is modelled after top international professional leagues, using FIBA (International Basketball Federation) rules, and player and referee standards set by Canada Basketball. A league created by Canadians for Canadians, CEBL rosters will be comprised of at least 70 percent Canadian players, many playing professionally in North America and overseas during the traditional basketball season. The league is operated primarily by Canadian executives from the NBA, NHL, CFL, NLL, and PGA Tour.
Ticketmaster is the official ticketing partner of the CEBL. Fans can visit www.ticketmaster.ca or download the Ticketmaster app for the widest selection of verified tickets.
Each CEBL team will play 10 home and 10 road games during the 15-week regular season. Teams will all play each other twice at home and twice on the road. The final day of the season is August 15, and four teams will then advance to a championship weekend tournament at a location to be announced at a later date.
