The Historical Basketball League
The First College Basketball League To Compensate
And Educate Its Players Based On Their Market Value
There is a staggering injustice in college sports
College athletes are the heart of their sports and deserve a fair share of the revenues they generate. Before the HBL, basketball players were excluded from those financial benefits while everyone around them received significant compensation.
Amateurism is a con — we compensate & educate
The HBL aims to change the landscape of collegiate athletics by disrupting the “amateurism model” and offering a legitimately superior alternative. We aim to improve the economic outlook of our athletes, the majority of whom will likely be minorities.
We’re shifting the paradigm
Over 50% of college basketball players in the Power 5 Conferences come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. The HBL enables our athletes to directly benefit from their talent and labor and create greater economic freedom and comfort for them and their families.
We’re giving athletes
a fair shot
98% of men's college basketball players do not reach the NBA. The HBL will encourage its athletes to make the most of the professional opportunities they generate while playing college basketball.
We’re building individual brands
The HBL will treat each individual athlete as a single-member LLC – in other words, we will assist them in building a personal and professional brand that will extend on and off the court, so that each can "build their business" without waiting for a mythical payday that may never come.
