Indianapolis IN, Evelyn Magley CEO of The Basketball League announced the newest market to be awarded a team, Charlotte NC.

The team will be called the Charlotte Purple Jackets. The team is a combination of 2 organizations, one played several years in a different league and the other was the Connecticut Cobras.

“I am personally thrilled to be close to my family this season but will miss Connecticut as well. North Carolina is known for its love of basketball and we are honored to bring a community first organization like TBL to Charlotte.” Anthony Hill TMO Purple Jackets

Charlotte geographically is a great fit in TBL as it joins Raleigh and Columbia already in the Carolina’s

“Having seen Anthony come through a difficult time with so many things hitting him at once & knowing what an additional team in Southeast division means, to TBL we are excited for this move.” Evelyn Magley CEO TBL

TBL begins its 6th season in March of 2023 with 50+ teams across the USA & Canada.
