(Orlando, FL) – The Florida Basketball Association (FBA) announces the addition of the Brevard Bobcats of Melbourne, Florida as a new expansion team for the upcoming 2020 season. The Bobcats will be owned by Meenyus Miller, Jr., a young entrepreneur and resident of Palm Bay, Florida.
The Bobcats are the second expansion team to be announced for the 2020 season. Earlier this week, the approval of the Gainesville Mighty Oaks was also announced.
“The planning and preparation already done by Mr. Miller was very impressive,” said Greg Kite, Commissioner of the FBA. “We’ve developed a strong following over the years for the FBA in Brevard County, and we look forward to seeing that tradition carry on with the Bobcats.”
“I’ve been watching the growth of the FBA for 5 years,” said Miller. “The FBA has changed the trajectory of opportunities for basketball players in Florida. I feel blessed nd honored to have been given this opportunity to build something that will enhance my community on multiple levels.”
Next steps for the Bobcats include finalizing their venue and building an inaugural roster, both of which have been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For more information about the Bobcats, email Mmillerjr@brevardbobcats.com.
