Premier League to NBL1 Central

The Premier League will now be named NBL1 Central.

Will it go back to the old ABA days where conferences (NBL1 North and South) will play-off against each other?

The NBL want to run a massive festive of each State vs each State as it used to be a money spinner.

If they get venue, timing and prize money right its a good little earner for the NBL.

Nsw will not be nbl 1 until 2021 and until some drastic changes will not be competitive if they have finals play offs against other groups as the top 3 teams are generally the same each season and the cost involved will not be cheap and most associations cannot really afford to field a men's and women's team to compete in it.

It was a very last minute push to get WA in for 2020 but since the clubs only met with the NBL just before Christmas and again in January, it was a long shot to get it all sorted by mid March when the season starts.

2021 for NBL1 West is pretty much a given.

Yes. I know for a fact that the NSW teams are doing well financially, but the person I spoke to (and they played CBA) said that if they entered the NBL1 comp they would go broke. Winning a SEABL or NBL1 comp is nice but it cost's $100,000's. It's something that you hang on the wall and can say yes we won it but it cost $200K. That is something they don't want to do. Their profits go into the development of the kids and they won't spend that amount of money to go broke.

If you're club doesn’t like the idea move over, there are plenty of towns and regions in nsw that would jump at the idea of having an national basketball team.
If qld and sa can do it so can nsw. It’s to give a clear pathway for juniors instead of turning away from the game as they get older.

It will send clubs broke in SA.

Already Southern are many thousands in debt from uncollected fees and have decreased their junior coaching development. South are spending all the money they created to secure a new stadium on winning a league which will only cost them that money and more, meaning they won't ever move out of a 200 seat - 2 court facility. Sturt never spend on seniors because they actually care about their juniors. West have list they 2 major sponsors and are still spending like they have them. Woodville have maybe 30 teams total and hardly any girls teams and they are spending to keep up with the others. North, Norwood and Forestville might be able to spend to win, but at what point does it become a waste when that money could go towards development? When Centrals and Eastern can’t even put competitive teams on the floor.

Each club just now spending more money to the NBL to spend more money on game night presentation to satisfy the league requirements to what end? Won’t be more people through the door to pay for it, and sponsors won’t be running to give their money to a league which is third tier.

#130 - I agree with the point of your post but want to correct the record in regards to Woodville. Woodville have hired a full time JDO, are pumping a lot of resources into juniors at the moment which is reflected in a increase of teams to 45 and a increase in the number of girls teams, plus a domestic competition which has started. Resources are going to juniors, not seniors.

You develop your juniors to help them enjoy basketball what other reason. Most of those kids won't go on to elite basketball. So you want those teams to go into NBL1 AND continue on with their local comps which will undoubtedly will send them broke.
The cost of NBL1 here is the issue. Can these small clubs spend 300k - 400K to win a (meaningless) title? No.
These states have an elite program already that in turn is quite expensive. Makes no sense what so ever.

There will always be a viable senior competition. There always has been, prior to the juniors. You don't have to overspend to have a competition exist. In fact overspending will be the reason Seniors hit a wall, not underspending. But either way, there will be a competition so everyone just take a breath and relax.

In regards to resources, BSA should have installed a matrix as the club JDO's requested a long time ago. This matrix would ensure that for a Club to qualify for the top level of Senior competition in SA they had to meet certain criteria across the Club as a whole. Not just investing in Full Time JDOs (with full time equivalent packages) but also Good Governance, Paid Administration, Finance Management, Domestic Leagues, Sponsorship and Community engagement.

Underpaid full time or part time JDO's as well as a lack of resources in recruitment, retaining and development at all junior basketball levels to prop up a Senior team is not the answer. But neither is investing 100% into juniors and running a Senior team for the sake of it.

There has to be balance of income vs expense and some diversity in both for a Club to truly be successful across the board.

Tier 1
Nbl / Wnbl (hopefully aligned teams in the future) the quicker the better...

^

Tier 2
Nbl1 Conferences North, East, South, Central, West (A legit nationwide semi pro comp)

^

Tier 3
Currently Big v, qbl, Waratah, premier league, sbl or similar, these are for associations not big enough to enter or cannot enter due to finances but still can enter men's and women’s teams. Maybe in time they can make the step up into tier 2 as the club grows.
Imo, this tier 3 should be restructured to be called nbl2 north, east, south, Central,, west where all the other teams fit into for uniformity, this competition would be without all the extras of nbl1 like live-streaming, marketing, etc. no conference end of season champs etc etc.

#130,

I have never heard so much ill informed dribble in all my life. NBL 1 will not make clubs broke - Poor Management will make Clubs broke.

You are guessing about every clubs position and in many cases you are wrong as has been identified by #145.

Southern Tigers had financial issues before NBL 1 came along.

South are financially well managed with good financial expertise on their Board. They are spending less than what you imagine and certainly is sustainable.

Sturt - lol - are you from Sturt and believe providing a strong pathway through seniors is a waste of money. Are you suggesting no other club cares about their juniors???

West - maybe you are from West(?) as you seem to have an intimate knowledge of what they are spending and what their sponsor situation is.

Woodville - your comment has already been refuted.

North, Norwood, Forestville - They are emerging more and more each year as powers in Juniors. I'm guessing Sturt are not spending money charged to parents wisely if these clubs are allegedly pouring money into their PL teams. These clubs are able to be financially strong while generating strong junior talent and strong PL teams. They show it is not mutually exclusive.

Centrals and Mavericks. I didn't follow your point if there was one at all.

So I have no doubt that NBL 1 Central will not send Clubs broke - only poor management can do that!

As a club representative, I was involved with the comprehensive discussions between the NBL and the WA SBL back in November and December. And they were comprehensive. And I can assure you that simply 'rebranding' as NBL1 will not send the clubs broke. And that is what it is - a rebrand. As others have said, if a club gets into financial difficulties after the change to NBL1, they (1) probably already had financial instability beforehand or (2) it happened due to mismanagement.

There was to be some small infrastructure costs, mainly relating to live streaming and signage, but that's about it. There are no NBL1 'fees' for example. In fact the clubs won't be paying the NBL anything. The upside to this is the possible distribution of $$$ generated by sports betting agreements in place between the NBL and some betting agencies. Eventually these funds would be distributed back to the states.

In the case of the WA SBL (and I assume also the PL and QBL), not much was to change in relation to the management and general running of the league. It was still to be managed and run by the SBL (Basketball WA), but with a different name. SBL playoffs also wouldn't change, nor would the SBL grand final weekend. In fact, apart from the re-branding and the 'national champs' weekend at the end of the season, you wouldn't notice the difference in a lot of ways.

The reason why the SBL didn't join for 2020 was more about uncertainty relating to signage, and the speed in which this all happened. Also the SBL plays the most games out of all the 2nd-tier leagues and consequently starts before all the other leagues, so we had a shorter timeframe to come to a decision, which some clubs used as a valid reason for holding off until 2021. In addition some clubs wanted to have a 'sit and watch' approach in relation to the QBL (and now PL) joining in 2020.

Half to two-thirds of the SBL clubs were in favour of joining this year, but the SBL decided that without a 100% positive consensus from all 14 clubs, the best decision was to hold off until 2021. My club was 100% in favour and we are disappointed that it isn't happening. But we also understand the reasons why some clubs have balked at it for 2020, and we subsequently accept the SBL's decision to postpone for 12 months.

In the case of NSW teams, would it be feasible to allow some southern NSW teams into NBL1 South, and in northern NSW let some teams into NBL1 North for a season or 2 to let other NSW clubs catch up and re-form a Central or East conference.

LK seems to be foot-to-the-floor when he has a plan (and I'm ok with that) but slow-down-a-little, may be the go, for NSW and NBL1.

Any chance of future Far East conference incorporating the NZNBL under the NBL1 banner (obviously to be in step with the NBL). Can't see it happening but that could be a fun end-of-season play-offs.

Other than Newcastle and Illawarra,what other country associations would be financial enough to play in NBL 1.

The answer-NONE.

Illawarra do not even play Waratah Championship or Waratah 1 as it will be known this year.

Newcastle had a strong womens team and won Waratah last season but they were stacked compared to other womens teams because they tried to go WNBL a few years ago and it did not happen.

Thats why they got Seebohm to coach initially.

Where is he now.

In the mens program the Newcastle mens team won it two years ago and last year finished bottom 3 even with 2 imports.

The teams that are normally the top 4 for Mens Waratah are:-Norths,Manly and last year Maitland and Crusaders who defeated Manly.

When you look at Fees the price to pay NBL 1 tripled by BNSW compared to playing Waratah Championship Division and some associations do lose money on their programs but will not admit it openly.

Lukosios,

So apart from the cost associated with signage and live-streaming. What were the financial benefits?

In SA clubs don't control their own stadiums primarily and actually have to pay course hire for games as well as staffing.

Also, who is paying the cost of attending the inevitable National Tournament which NBL players won’t be able to attend due to their NBL team commitments?

You have three paragraphs there so I will address each one individually. And please remember a lot of what I say is in the perspective of the WA SBL and my club in particular.

1. Short/medium term - additional exposure from NBL branding, additional exposure from updated online content such as a free NBL-supplied website, additional exposure from every game being live streamed, additional exposure by the pure fact that you are part of a 'national competition' of some sorts.... I could keep going on. If you saw what we were presented with at our meetings with the NBL, you would understand.

Medium/long term - a share of betting revenue.

2. Half the SBL clubs are in the same situation re venues. Irrelevant anyway as becoming 'NBL1' doesn't mean any more home games, and only one extra week added to the season. And that's only if you are the champion in your league.

3. I can't talk for the SA PL, but over here in WA, the SBL were going to subsidise it. And remember it's only the men's comp that will have this 'national championship' weekend. As far as NBL players are concerned, if they played on the previous weekend in their NBL1 Central grand final, I'm pretty sure they will be given another week. And as far as I'm concerned, if you are a club relying on NBL fringe-players to win you a championship, then you're at risk of losing those players towards the end of the season irrespective of if you are part of NBL1 or not.

NBL1 south clubs have to pay an entry fee of 33k. No idea what this is for. Referee costs are in addition to this and about another 9k. In addition there are travel costs. These funds are paid to basketball Vic.

Is anybody able to shed any light on whether the new nbl1 leagues suddenly have these enourmous entry fees. If so maybe this is why people are saying it will send

Wow Chinese whispers being fed by mischievous comments - a recipe for global panic never before seen since the Y2K bug. And what a beat up that was.

There is no additional cost being levied on the clubs by BSA. All that is being charged is referee costs and Hudl costs which is consistent with 2019. For SA there are no entry fees.

NBL and BSA will provide all the support required, especially on game night, to ensure any additional work by clubs is minimised

This is contained in an MOU, a draft which has been circulated to clubs for comment. In addition a clause is included to allow PL clubs to step away from NBL 1 after 12 months if certain events occur which may have been picked up in a more lengthy due diligence.

Clubs are protected and a lot of what is being said is just scaremongering and it seems it is coming from one club.

What is proposed is very similar to what Lukosius has outlined previously except SA has been able to negotiate even further safeguards.

There are no 'entry fees' being charged by the NBL. The additional costs that the NBL1 South teams were given at the beginning of last year were from Basketball Victoria. This was a question I personally asked Dean Anglin (NBL1 Ops Manager). He assured us that those additional costs the NBL1 South teams received were nothing to do with NBL1 itself.

Basically if any new NBL1 clubs are on the receiving end of significant additional costs relating to entry into NBL1, you will find those costs are coming from their state body.

not fake 100% accurate

I am confused as I thought Dean Anglin was Basketball Victoria's Senior Elite League Manager and therefore employed by basketball victoria and not the NBL. has this changed?

the NBL1 south league commenced when SEABL was disbanded by BA. BV came out and said they were starting up a new elite league. it effectively replaced seabl all those clubs played in nbl1 but for a couple plus some new vic clubs. there was much discussion about what the new league would be called. not too far out from the commencement of the season it was announced the league would be called nbl1. i thought it was like the nbl were the victorian leagues naming right sponsor and as apart of that deal they were going to handle the "media" type work.the clubs would have to meet some match day kpi about what the on court product looked like

is that right and the nbl are basically coming on as naming right sponsors for the other state league and a part of that deal is the participating clubs need to meet some kpi on match day.

or is this something that is really being pushed by BV (doesnt really make sense they would) but has me thinking as it is suggested above that anglin is involved in the negotiations with those states but he is employed by bv not nbl?

Sounds about right to me. The initial changeover to NBL1 from SEABL meant those same teams and a few other new clubs had to front up with about half what the original seabl clubs were paying in entry fees every year.
Not sure in year 2 about what's happening in terms of existing clubs going on. The ongoing costs of an NBL1 team is still high in terms of players costs etc. In other new Leagues I am not sure what will transpire. Nor if their will be a new competition rather than a rebranded league.

I started the Sydney going into the NBL1 stream and I need to speak with the person who would know. I do know as I said previously that their club was anti NBL1.
I need to find out exactly what their club's requirement is from NBL1.

3. I can't talk for the SA PL, but over here in WA, the SBL were going to subsidise it. And remember it's only the men's comp that will have this 'national championship' weekend. As far as NBL players are concerned, if they played on the previous weekend in their NBL1 Central grand final, I'm pretty sure they will be given another week. And as far as I'm concerned, if you are a club relying on NBL fringe-players to win you a championship, then you're at risk of losing those players towards the end of the season irrespective of if you are part of NBL1 or not.



The women will also play the championship weekend,

It's sad that nswbball and wabball will fall behind the other states, I guess that’s what happens when you don’t in brace change and live in the past.

How will they fall behind?

It's the same premier league with the same players and the same small crowds.

It’s effectively just a naming rights sponsor for the league.

The clubs don’t all of sudden have more money to lure or retain better players.

Maybe or maybe nbl1 teams will pick up all the best talent from nsw and wa.
I don't even want to know about nsw or wa teams only nbl1 teams and the national championship.
So could fall behind in talent and will fall behind in exposure, in live in qld and have already checked out all the teams in nbl1 central and south.
I don’t know or care about any team from nsw or wa.

Or stay in a career that will pay you 40 years worth of income.

Hard to turn down a $100k job and career for a season of $20k.
