COVID-19: Rwanda's preparedness and response

Basketball African League(BAL) finals

The 2020 Basketball Africa League (BAL) season is the inaugural season of the Basketball Africa League (BAL). The league is a joint effort between the National Basketball Association (NBA) and FIBA.[1] Starting from this season, it is the highest tier continental league of Africa, replacing the FIBA AfroLeague.

In its first season, the league exists out of 12 teams and is scheduled to begin in March 2020. The qualifying rounds for the season were held in October and December 2019. The national champion of each African country has the opportunity to qualify through the qualifying rounds. Meanwhile, six national champions directly qualify for the regular season.

On 3 March 2020, the BAL announced it was postponing its inaugural season due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.[2] The decision was made following recommendations of the Senegalese government. The BAL intends to start its league at a later date.
