    The new Australian Basketball League season could be delayed until the new year if that's what it takes to start the competition with fans in the stands

    The new Australian Basketball League season could be delayed until the new year if that's what it takes to start the competition with fans in the stands


    NBL owner Larry Kestelman is hopeful the campaign can still start in October, but says if covid-19 restrictions on large gatherings are still in place at that time, a later starting date is very much an option.

    NBL clubs are reliant on sponsorship and gate takings given the competition lacks a rich broadcast deal.
