Organizations that prefer the 8 month break can continue to do so. Those that want to keep the momentum going have a no cost franchise fee for PBA and LPBA Winter. Another big change is each division will have 6 teams that qualify for the playoffs. This will give more clubs an opportunity to play on the biggest stage and take their organization to the next level. Each season for Men and Women will crown their own champion. The Pro Basketball Association has formed a non-profit organization called “PBA Family” that will leverage their NPO status to help their member organizations financially to play year round with a Men’s and Women’s pro team by covering franchise fees for both PBA and LPBA teams that play year round.

“We’ve overwhelmingly heard back from the members of the Association the need for the year round approach. Eight months is a long time off away from fans and sponsors. Many chose to play in other leagues during the Winter season and have expressed that everyone in their organization can see an obvious difference in what they received in the way of organization, professionalism, marketing, promotion, complete box scores home and away from every game, televised games. There really is no other league on our level at a similar price point. What we’ve determined is the other leagues typically fall into one or more of three categories: Regional, Recreational, or not Financially viable. The PBA fits that sweet spot for the owners we’ve spoke with; the highest level of the sport after the NBA and G-League but still affordable. Creating a structure where $100,000-$150,000 is needed to fund a 4 month season just isn’t sustainable. Even teams in the NBA G-League aren’t averaging the 3000-5000 fans a game it would take to make that make sense. On the other end of the spectrum, there is just too many leagues that aren’t as professional as they have come to expect from the PBA. We know there are clubs that do it right, expect complete box score statistics every game, a professional appearance online and on social media, televise all their games, promote their players and coaches for overseas opportunities but aren’t getting that from leagues that have had decades to get it right. We feel like we’ve passed them in our first year and will continue to make the gap in quality obvious in year 2. To be able to do it all for $229 a game. That’s the best of both worlds – top level quality at affordable prices. We want more of an organizations revenue to fall to the bottom line for them so we’re decreasing costs and increasing their profitability and offering profit sharing by way of advertising revenue. Nearly a quarter Million people watch PBATV every month and we’re leveraging that following to give back to the member clubs of the Association.” – PBA Commissioner Chris Terrell
