The Stingers open their inaugural season Friday, May 10 at 7 p.m. against the Niagara River Lions. Modelled after top international professional leagues, the CEBL is comprised of teams in Hamilton, Edmonton, Guelph, Niagara (St. Catharines), Fraser Valley (Abbotsford), and Saskatchewan (Saskatoon). Each team plays 10 home and 10 road games using FIBA (International Basketball Federation) rules, and player and referee standards set by Canada Basketball. Rosters will be comprised of at least 70 percent Canadian players, many playing professionally in North America and overseas during the traditional basketball season.
A league created by Canadians for Canadians, the league is operated primarily by Canadian executives from the NBA, NHL, CFL, NLL, and PGA Tour. The 15-week schedule will see each team play each other twice at home and twice on the road. Four teams will advance to a championship weekend tournament at a location to be announced at a later date.
