The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the National Basketball League of Canada cancelling the remainder of the 2019/2020 season.

All basketball operations have been suspended since March 12, 2020.

“NBL Canada’s decision to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 season as well as the playoffs was truly a difficult one to make,” said Deputy Commissioner Audley Stephenson. “Our owners, management, support staff, players and coaching staff invested countless hours in preparation for the season and its incredibly sad that we were unable to complete the year the way we would have liked to.”

The NBL board of governors made the unanimous decision on Tuesday.
