Robert: NBL, St. John’s Edge announce return
After COVID-19 forced everyone to step off the hardcourt, the National Basketball League of Canada is ready to get back at it.
“The National Basketball League of Canada is excited to return for its 10th season and proud to contribute to the re-build of our communities through the game of basketball,” said Deputy Commissioner Audley Stephenson “We will continue to follow the direction of government and public health agencies to ensure the safety of our fans, players, teams and league personnel associated with our game.”

The league, and by association the St. John’s Edge, are aiming for a late December start to the 2020-2021 season.
The 2019-2020 season was cancelled in early April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
