The League

Since 2017, MBL – Melbourne Basketball League has brought amateur local players, professional athletes, overseas rising stars & passionate young ballers together in Melbourne – for the love of basketball. MBL is a pro-am open league. As one of the most-watched & followed leagues in Melbourne, we are here to showcase the firepower of Melbourne ballers in the game of basketball.

MBL was founded by Drew Romero & Torch Chavez. They are both Filipino-Australians who have experience in running domestic leagues in Philippines and Australia as well.

With the continuous support of the community and businesses, MBL has grown from 1 league to several leagues & brands. MBL now has Liga Australia, Liga DLeague, UniCup University Cup, Jr MBL, Melbourne Market & Victorian Basketball Network.
