In April this year the BBL announced exciting format changes for the new season, which begins in September with a new group stage of the BBL Cup and is followed in December by the start of Championship fixtures.
The BBL Cup Group Stage sees the 12 teams split into two groups of six to play home and away fixtures before the top four in each group will advance to the Cup Quarter-Finals.
The top two in each group will host the one-legged ties in the last eight before the Semi-Finals are played over two legs to decide the two teams heading to Arena Birmingham for the Cup Final on Sunday 26 January 2020.
The BBL Trophy will remain the same with the bracket format, which was adopted for the 2018-19 season.
The path to the Trophy Final at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena on Sunday 15 March 2020 is mapped out with a First Round draw as the 12 BBL sides will again be joined by four invited non-BBL sides.
In 2020 we will see the introduction of a best-of-three series in the Play-Offs Quarter-Final and Semi-Final stages on the road to the Finals at The O2.
Play-Offs qualification remains the same with the top eight teams in the Championship standings advancing to the post-season competition.
The regular BBL Championship season will change to 22 games with teams playing each other twice per season, once at home and once away.
