THE CHARLOTTE PURPLE JACKETS are excited to begin their inaugural season in The Basketball League (TBL) in March of 2023.
Founded in 2021, stemming from a “God-given” vision; current Director of Basketball Operations, Al’Lonzo Coleman, and team president, India Timpton, curated a playoff worthy program in their first season in the ABA League.
Our main focusses are rooted in positively impacting the community, winning basketball games, creating new opportunities for our players professionally, and in making the most fulfilling partnerships we can with our local businesses.
All pillars that aligned with the work being done by of our TMO, Anthony Hill, his staff, and their TBL franchise the Connecticut Cobras in the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
Now both of our organizations, values, and goals are united; and we are ecstatic to bring The Basketball League (TBL) to Charlotte, North Carolina.
As the 10th largest growing city in the country – our community, local businesses, and athletes are the perfect market to introduce a new franchise into for the 2023 season.
Our main color, Purple – known as the color of royalty, pays homage to the nickname of our home the “Queen City”.
Our logo, of the Purple Jacket – includes our city’s skyline and was chosen to be homogenous to fellow Charlotte professional basketball program, The Hornets.
We are excited to not only compete at a high level in this league, but also to learn from it.
It’s time to fly together and make THE CHARLOTTE PURPLE JACKETS a household name!
