Organisers of the African Basketball League (ABL) have promised free Wi-Fi services in all venues of the ABL when the maiden season kicks off later this month.

One of the prime movers of the league, Olisa Udezue, disclosed this in Lagos.

He said that with this service, people could come in and log on to the Wi-Fi service, while ABL would also know the number of people in and out of the venue, and their time of entry.

Udezue explained that ABL is not restricted to a set of people. He said that “ABL is a sports commission franchise and we are going to be having games across West Africa. We are going to be having games in sports facilities where about 2,000 people will come from Dakar, to Abidjan, to Lome, to Lagos, and Libreville.”

Udezue further said that his company Transnovantefns, an Internet service provider, would help create customer services “that is second to none” at ABL match venues

The brainchild of Africa Sports Entertainment Limited in collaboration with Wakanow Sports, ABL was launched with fanfare on December 17, 2015 at the Lagos Motorboat Club. It is a private league that will adopt a round-robin format.

Daily Sports report that the teams that will be involved in the inaugural edition of the league are Lagos Islanders, Stallions, Lagos City Chiefs and Lagos Warriors Basket Club (all Nigerian clubs), Dakar Rapids (Senegal) Abidjan Ramblers (Ivory Coast or Cote d’Ivoire) and Izobe Basketball Club from Libreville, Gabon.
