Running on an innovative business model, the Pro Basketball Circuit will make way for radical changes to minor leagues in the United States.
Winston-Salem, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/13/2013 -- For years, success has evaded basketball leagues in the United States outside of the NBA. While minor leagues exist today across the country, operational problems continue to hound in divisions across the country, including in the NBA subsidiary NBDL or the D-League. Outside of the NBA, most minor leagues struggle to remain in existence for more than a year or two.
In the current climate, fielding a minor basketball league operation proves to be daunting for investors, and playing pro basketball as a career proves to be completely unreliable for players. With neither guaranteed contracts nor a stable fan base, talented players lack the right avenue to show their skills and advance their career in one of the world's most loved sports.
Giving U.S. minor leagues a much needed thrust for improvement, the Pro Basketball Circuit is a breakthrough system that is seen to impact existing AAU, NCAA and/or minor leagues, and provide much needed stability to the present basketball market. The PBC is set to be launched in 2014.
"What's coming is a sustainable, scalable pro basketball circuit. This will allow players to play professionally while remaining in the U.S., to work around their lives, locations and schedules. It will allow your more opportunity to control your own destiny," say representatives of the league. "Team owners will have much more flexibility and will be able to last much longer - most minor league teams today fold within a single season."
Polishing the image of U.S. minor leagues, the PBC will operate as a Pro Basketball League where potential team owners, including players themselves, can start a team with a miniscule investment and grow it into a financial powerhouse. The teams play in tournaments for a chance to move up or down in levels of play and make more money in the process. The system is tough, built on competition, but for those players who are serious about their games and have the skill to match, the rewards can be significant.
In order to ensure efficient management of the league and its teams, the PBC will provide regulations on scheduling, referees, transactions and rosters. In addition, PBC will also have a groundbreaking team financial model where participating teams receive almost all of the profits from ticket sales, concessions and on-site merchandise sales. All games will be filmed/broadcast by NetCast Sports Network. Potential coaches, scouts and foreign teams will have access to watch all of the broadcasts. In today's market, even most players who played college basketball at Division I schools do not have game film to show prospective teams.
