New season of the African Basketball League (ABL) will commence in October, organisers have announced.
The inaugural season was concluded on Sunday in Lagos.
The CEO of the African Basketball League, Ugo Udezue, thanked Africans for believing in the league even as he hinted that more teams will be part of the League next season.
‘’We are increasing the number of teams to ten next season; and in next two years we are going to have twenty teams in the ABL,’’ he stated.
The African Basketball League officially tipped off on March 5th 2016 at the Landmark Centre in Lagos with six teams; Lagos Islanders, Lagos Warriors, Stallions of Lagos, Dakar Rapids, Libreville Izobe and the current Champions of the League, Abidjan Ramblers.
To emerge champions, Abidjan Ramblers defeated Lagos Warriors in an exciting battle.
Organisers say ten teams will compete in the next edition, as they hope to increase the number in subsequent ones.
