The 2019 Tema Community Basketball League season will still have 12 teams compete for the title after Wildcats inclusion in the league.
The newest team in the league replaces Ashaiman Lions who withdrew from competing in this year’s campaign due to varied reasons.
Three weeks into the new season, the league has operated with 11 teams and forced organizers to tinker with the regular season schedule.
However, reports of a new team stepping into replace Lions started trickling in about two weeks ago and got confirmed only recently.
Lions absence is a big loss to the league as the Ashaiman side is one of the seven teams that competed in the maiden Tema League in 2016.
The team has impressed winning preseason competition-Campaign Tournament- and making it to the Tema League Final game twice in 2016 and 2017.
Wildcats get straight into action later this weekend when the side takes on fellow league debutant Spintex Knights on Sunday, April 20 at the Tema Community 4 Court.
