Multi-year agreement with FIBA and domestic leagues to elevate club basketball in the region

In August 2020, EASL and FIBA entered into a multi-year agreement granting EASL FIBA’s recognition and support to run an annual league for top professional clubs in the region. “The recognition of the East Asia Super League is based on a shown commitment to developing basketball in the region, and is in line with FIBA’s club competition strategy that is to shape international club competitions,” said FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis.

EASL is also working directly with the top professional leagues in all core markets – Greater China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. After receiving FIBA recognition, EASL is finalizing agreements with all domestic leagues for multi-year partnerships.
