Austrian Hockey League To Add Bolzano; BBL Denies Dusseldorf League License
Published June 25, 2013
NO LICENSE: SPORT1 reported German second division basketball club Dusseldorf Baskets "will not be playing in the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) next season, despite getting promoted." The BBL licensing committee "denied the club its BBL license on April 17 and now the BBL's court of arbitration has upheld this decision." The one remaining BBL spot will now most likely be awarded through a wild card process. Clubs that are "interested in playing in the BBL have to submit their application to the league by June 27" (SPORT1, 6/21).
