    As the New Zealand NBL delivers two games a week with fans in attendance, the Australian NBL is pushing out its start date

    As the New Zealand NBL delivers two games a week with fans in attendance, the Australian NBL is pushing out its start date


    League owner Larry Kestelman has confirmed they are aiming for the 2020-21 season to start on December 3, with the regular season wrapping up in late April.

    Kestelman said the later than normal start date would give the competition better odds of having crowds in arenas as COVID-19 infection rates continue to ease in most Australian states.
