MARION COUNTY SHOWTIME STALLIONS TO PLAY PALM BEACH KNIGHTS AT AMWAY CENTER

STALLIONS V KNIGHTS(Orlando, FL) – The Florida Basketball Association (FBA) will welcome their newest team, the Marion County Showtime Stallions, in grandiose fashion this week by scheduling an exhibition against the Palm Beach Knights at Orlando’s Amway Center, home of the NBA’s Orlando Magic.

The contest, an exhibition event scheduled for January 29th, will be the first official FBA game for Marion County. The two teams will take to the NBA floor immediately after the Orlando Magic host the Milwaukee Bucks that same evening.

The contest was organized by Mark King, Owner and Head Coach of the Orlando based Florida Flight, who saw an opportunity to enhance the brand awareness and image of the FBA.

“We’ve developed a solid relationship with the Magic as of late,” said King. “I saw this as a great way to introduce Marion County to the FBA, and kick off our 4th season in a big way.”

Both teams are bringing with them a caravan of fans for the event. The Stallions crowd of support will also include a couple of Milwaukee Bucks players, one of which will be John Henson, whose brother, Patrick, plays for the Stallions.

Fans who purchased tickets can also enjoy the Magic vs. Bucks game slated for 7:00pm. The FBA contest will begin shortly after the completion of that game.

(Orlando, FL) – The Florida Basketball Association (FBA) is pleased to announce the release of the 2014 Regular Season Schedule.

The league will return all four of their inaugural FBA teams and include a new, yet to be named Miami-based expansion team.

The FBA season will kick off Saturday, May 10th, with a 2013 championship rematch between the defending champion Heartland Prowl and the 2012 Champion Tampa Bay Rebels in Lake Wales, Florida. The Florida Flight will also take an east coast swing to Palm Beach and Miami for a doubleheader weekend.

The season will again be comprised of 12 regular season games for each team. It will also include an FBA All-Star Game to be played at the end of the season. In addition to the All-Star Game, festivities will include a 3-point shootout and a slam-dunk contest.

“We’re excited to show growth as we enter our 3rd season with the addition of a team in Miami,” said FBA Commissioner Greg Kite. “The FBA brand is being built on the quality, not quantity of teams in our league. Our steady, deliberate progression confirms our commitment to that vision.”
