NBLC Announces Cancellation of the 2020-21 Season
After announcing that play would resume on March 12th, 2021, the NBL Canada board of directors have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020-21 season as a result of ongoing safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stephenson added, “The hope is that we would have seen a significant difference that would allow us to play however the continuing increase in COVID-19 case counts, the rise of the new variants and the inability to have fans in our venues makes it difficult to do so.”
“On behalf of the board of directors, I want to thank you for your patience and understanding. These are extremely difficult days for everyone. Please stay healthy and safe and we look forward to being to bring good news regarding next season.”
Further details regarding the start date and season structure of the 2021-22 regular season schedule will be made at a later date.
