NBL: Mid-Season Transfer Window Open, Second Round Fixture Out

The first of it’s kind Mid-Season Transfer Window is now open, and will close on May 30 2022, FUBA has confirmed.

FUBA General Secretary Hudson Ssegamwenge, in a letter addressing the clubs, said that any Player/s may transfer from Lower Division Leagues during this window after consent of all parties involved.

The players transferred from NBL to Lower Division Leagues shall only be eligible to play in the second round of the different Lower Leagues.

He added: “Such Players shall cease to play in the NBL once communication of
his/her Transfer has been made to the Competition Council during this
Transfer window.”

The transfer window procedure is that the Team writes to the Competition Council through the

Teams will hope to use the window to bolster their squad before the start of the second round.

Some players, including Francis Azolibe to City Oilers, were registered late for first round hence are now eligible for the second round.
