The Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the Mark D Ball Basketball Championship, has announced that the competition will now begin on January 15.

The championship was billed to begin on January 8, 2022, but a statement by the Secretary of the LOC, Umar Abdullahi, on Thursday, announced a slight change in the commencement date of the Championship.

“This development was taken by the LOC due to requests from some of the participating teams, who pleaded for time.

“Consequently, the Women Championship originally slated to commence on January 8, 2022, will now dunk off on January 15 and end on January 22, while the Men’s Championship will commence on January 22 and run for 3 Months,” the statement read in part.

A total of 24 teams (12 women’s and 12 men’s basketball teams) will be competing for honours in the championship to be held at the Indoor Basketball Hall of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.

The tournament is part of stakeholders’ efforts geared towards resurrecting the domestic basketball leagues in 2022.
