Canadian Elite Basketball League

Recommended Posts

The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) is a professional men’s basketball league expected to begin play in spring of 2019. Six teams were announced May 2, 2018, that will be owned and operated by ownership group Canadian Basketball Ventures. The league was formed as essentially a rival to the National Baskeball League of Canada (NBLC).

The fact that a team in this league is from the other league doesn't show to much stability already.

 

Logos are ok for a lower division league but if this is meant to be a tier one league then they are dreadful.

Hamilton's is a bit too "friendly", Niagara is cool but just doesn't say "Niagara" to me, and Guelph just seems... generic and a bit boring?

Niagara was in NBL Canada.  This is a summer league so I guess they're hoing to have dome NBLC players as well fue to being a Canadian league

These look like Create-A-Team logos in an EA game.

I like the Rattlers' shorts...and I'd probably like their jerseys if not for the big logo.  The combo of team name + number + big logo rarely works in basketball, as Fraser Valley and Edmonton also prove here.  If they really want their logos on the jerseys, I would've had a small one under the collar.

Seems like it will be a league wide thing. Rattlers uniforms are the best shown off so far

This is a Canadian summer league where they get Division 1 Canadian players, Pro players, and Canadian University (U Sports) players

I didn’t either. Only thing I don’t like is the massive logo on the belly. Other than that, I like it. League was made to rival the NBLC and they already have a leg up on them by having a streamlined uniform brand
