The third season of the Cambodian Basketball League is all set to hit the floor at the Olympic Stadium on March 21, with 11 teams in the fray and Angkor Beer staying on as the main sponsors for the second year running.
The renewal of the part-nership between Cambrew, the makers of Angkor Beer, and the CBL was announced at a weekend news conference in Phnom Penh that was addressed by the vice president of the Cambodian Basketball Federation, the director-general of sport at the Ministry of Education, Sport and Youth, Ouk Sotheycheat, and the secretary-general of the National Olympic Committee, Vath Chamroeun.
Later addressing the media personnel, CBF secretary-general of the Kennenth Kim Ung said the season would have been a non-starter without the solid support from Cambrew, as the federation worked towards the development of the game in the Kingdom.
The league will involve 11 teams with each outfit playing 10 games at the end of which the top eight will make it to the quarterfinal playoffs.
Each round of the playoffs will be a best of three series with the first team with two wins moving up.
In the 2014 season finale, Pate 310 shut out Davies Paints, who won the championship the previous year as Alaxan Patriots.
