The ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) is the first and only regional Men’s Professional Basketball League in Asia. Founded in 2009, the League tipped off with six countries in Southeast Asia. The ABL extended its reach to East Asia in 2016 by welcoming teams from Hong Kong and Taiwan, strengthening its roster of ASEAN-based clubs representing Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam.
The ABL expanded further in 2017 and saw its league roster grow to its highest with the inclusion of China, Thailand and Indonesia. With its continuous growth, the league envisions the participation of more teams from East Asia, Southeast Asia and nearby regions in the future.
The League aims to promote camaraderie, sportsmanship and love for the game of basketball by providing an avenue for club teams to enjoy competition and fair play.
