A joint statement from BBL and Basketball England:
The elected Directors of Basketball England have met with representatives of BBL Management Board yesterday to review the recent developments in the sport.
The meeting had a positive outcome, with the two groups committed to working together to find the best solution for the development of basketball in England. A more holistic approach to investment within the sport, along with greater transparency in communication between the organisations have been identified as important factors to progress the sport and current licence review process forward.
Basketball England and the BBL are dedicated to providing the best possible strategy to help basketball achieve its potential and will continue to work productively together throughout the forthcoming developments of the sport. Representatives from both organisations will meet again as soon as practical.
