NBL Canada Announces New Team in Montreal
(TORONTO, ON), The President and CEO of the National Basketball League of Canada, Andre Levingston, announced today that there will be a new team for the Province of Quebec, based in Montreal, which will play in the upcoming 2012/2013 season. This comes as the League made the decision to remove the Laval Kebs from the League's roster.
"The Kebs placed 3rd in the League last year but were experiencing ongoing challenges that required the League to move in a different direction to ensure the continuity and long-term stability of the League."
Levingston said the NBLC is moving quickly to address the situation by preparing to announce a new team for the Montreal area.
"We are grateful to the fans in Quebec and we hope that support will continue in Montreal and throughout the province as the League and the new management team build a thriving and skilled organization and team of players," said Levingston.
Details of the new Montreal team, including team name and its playing venue, will be released by the League very soon.
The National Basketball League of Canada is committed to providing basketball fans in Quebec with high calibre basketball and affordable family entertainment.
The League has 7 other teams across Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI. The NBL Canada 2012/2013 season tips off on November 2nd.
