About the CEBL
The Canadian Elite Basketball League is a professional men’s basketball league with 10 franchises across Canada. The league was founded in 2017 and its inaugural season played in 2019. Luckily for the Ontario basketball community, there are five CEBL franchises in Ontario: Guelph Nighthawks, Hamilton Honey Badgers, Niagara River Lions, Ottawa Blackjacks, and the newly formed Scarborough Shooting Stars.
The CEBL provides home-grown athletes an exclusive opportunity to represent their communities and further their careers as professional basketball players. It provides fans with edge-of-your-seat excitement through a high-caliber basketball experience in a family-friendly entertainment environment.
The fourth season of the CEBL tips off on Wednesday, May 25. Three new franchises will join the expanding league this season: Montreal Alliance, Newfoundland Growlers, and Scarborough Shooting Stars. The culminating League Championship will be hosted in Ottawa from August 12 – 14, 2022.
