Further planning competition betFIRST BNXT League, All Star Game cancelled

The BNXT League has decided to cancel the BNXT All Star game (February 5, 2022) due to the current uncertainty and potential commercial impact. Following the recent decision by the Belgian government to provisionally close the arenas to the public until January 28 and the uncertainty regarding a possible opening in the Netherlands, the possibility of creating additional playing time in the national phase after New Year’s will be examined at very short notice.

“The All Star Game requires a long preparation and communication campaign, not to mention the voting we organize among the fans to designate the starters,” frames general manager Wim Van de Keere. “As it looks now, the All Star Game festival means a commercial risk rather than a basketball celebration if we want to bring it in the way we planned. In addition, it also entails a certain health risk to gather players from 21 clubs in 2 locker rooms. “We also want to give our clubs maximum opportunity to finish games at a time when hopefully fans will again be allowed. The exercise that we are going to do together with Hypercube to see if we can create space in the calendar after New Year in that sense, is also fully in line with this thought.”

President Ramses Braakman adds: “The viability of the clubs is a priority. The business model of basketball in both countries is built around ticketing, hospitality and sponsorship. To keep this model sustainable we need an audience. Our clubs have already shown early this season that they are perfectly capable of organizing games in a professional manner with respect for the rules.” In conclusion, Braakman frames the priorities in a possible review of the calendar: “We do not want to deviate from the end date of the competition or the competition formula. In addition, we will of course engage in talks with our partners to explain the intentions as clearly as possible within the framework of existing agreements.”

Below is an overview of the games that are still scheduled in the Netherlands and Belgium until the end of December. A complete overview of the scheduled games can be found on the BNXT League website, www.bnxtleague.com. Please visit the website for further updates around the scheduling of games.
