History in the Making

The Basketball Africa League, or the BAL, is the NBA’s first professional league outside of North America. A joint venture by the NBA and FIBA, the format of qualification and competition was modeled after the UEFA Champions League.

While six of the participating teams qualified by winning their country’s domestic competition, the other six participants gained entry through a separate qualifier tournament.

The BAL’s inaugural season tips off on March 13th, 2020.
