(Orlando, FL) – Due to the elevation of Covid-19 cases within the state of Florida, the FBA Board of Governors have voted to withdraw plans to host a 2020 regular season.

The FBA adjusted to play the 2020 regular season in one location this year without fans, making the appropriate investments to offer commercial advertisements as a new, alternative revenue stream during games streamed to the public.

“Securing the venue dates for a full season has become too much of a challenge given the recent surge of Covid-19 cases in Florida,” said FBA Commissioner Greg Kite. “At this time, it’s more prudent to redirect our attention to 2021 while finding ways to do some sort of league smaller, more flexible league events this year.”

Although the regular season has been cancelled, FBA teams have been working hard to establish reasonable, executable plans to provide basketball opportunities that ensure players still get necessary, high quality game film. From exhibition games, youth camps and clinics and other alternative events, FBA fans can still expect a mix of diversified basketball activities in the state of Florida.

The FBA is a Florida-based professional basketball league providing a development, branding and exposure platform for athletes, referees and other individuals seeking to further their professional basketball career.
