The 2021 Accra Basketball League (ABL) Season is likely to commence at the end of June according to League Director Alex Kukula who said this in an exclusive chat with Basketballghana.com
This statement comes on the back of the league clearing a major hurdle by vaccinating all personnel against COVID 19; the vaccination program recently concluded at the Lebanon House.
The rise of the COVID 19 pandemic and its lingering effect wiped out the 2020 season and has wiped out a chunk of the 2021 season already and there is pressure to start the league. The Basketball Africa League zonal qualifiers for the 2022 edition start in October and Ghana’s league winner is expected to compete in the qualifiers.
However, the league has a tentative date in mind according to Kukula and is somewhere close to the end of the month with a different format to be adopted too.
“We are thinking of what format we will play the league in that one is in the works we will meet the teams and discuss with them what it is and then we will fix a (commencement) date. Date we have a date in mind but is not definite so we are thinking about the end of the month” he said. (Click highlighted text to watch full interview)
