Play-In Tournament Confirmed

The Hungry Jack’s National Basketball League (NBL) will introduce the NBL Finals Play-In next season which is guaranteed to shake-up the end of the season run for teams.
 
“We are very excited to announce that our Finals campaign will include a Play-In from next season, and believe it will add greatly to the excitement and intrigue as the season’s finalists are determined,” NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said. 
 
“We are assessing multiple models of how the Play-In will be structured and how many teams will be included, and will make further announcements in the near future.
 
“We have seen how successful the Play-In concept has been in the NBA and the numerous benefits that it has delivered to fans. 
 
“Teams will stay in the hunt for the championship for that bit longer, Finals spots will be decided in new and innovative ways, and an extra layer of excitement will be added for our fans.”
