I want the CBL to be the Uber and Airbnb of the basketball world by creating not just a playing opportunity, but a worthwhile economic opportunity for our participants.
Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) December 11, 2015
The CBL Exposure League offers a new free team ownership plan for individuals with a sports background and entrepreneurial spirit. Team owners can also get trained and certified as an owner operator in the league and receive team start-up assistance, a custom team website, and other needed business support to successfully run their teams. Players are not paid for playing in the CBL Exposure League, but they are allowed to receive cash prizes if their team wins the CBL tournaments. College-bound players can chose to opt-out of the cash prize winnings if they want to maintain their amateur status for college eligibility.
“We decided to do a no-cost team start-up model because it allows us to get more teams started faster. The more teams we have in our league the more games players can play. And the more teams we have in the league that qualify for our tournaments the more we can increase our cash prizes,” said Steve Larkin, Senior Vice President of Operations.
The CBL has a year-round schedule with four major cash prize tournaments, one at the end of each calendar quarter that teams must qualify for by playing thirty games against other CBL teams within the quarter. Team managers can earn money by running a successful business operation for the team as well.
The real goal that the CBL seeks is to create a new economy for the non-professional basketball world says Johnson. “I want the CBL to be the Uber and Airbnb of the basketball world by creating not just a playing opportunity, but a worthwhile economic opportunity for our participants,” said Jamar Johnson, the CBL’s Chief League Commissioner.
