The National Basketball League of Canada announces the delay of its tenth season until March 2021 tentatively.

After announcing that it would be resuming play in late December, NBL Canada board of directors unanimously voted to further postpone its return to a tentative start date of March 12th, 2021 as a result of ongoing safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The league expects to limit the number of games under a reduced schedule with limited fans inclusive of safety protocols such as physical distancing and other measures focused on minimizing the risk of transmitting the virus as much as possible.

Further details regarding season structure, the number of games to be played and playoff format will be made available upon release of the 2020-21 NBL Canada regular season schedule.

We cannot thank our fans enough for their patience and support during this unprecedented time.

Please see below for answers to some frequently asked questions regarding the announcement. Answers are being updated as information becomes available. Please continue to check back for updates.
