Vasco and Botafogo return to the NBB after withdrawal of approval

With Vasco and Botafogo, NBB 2023/2024 will be the biggest edition in the history of the tournament, which has 19 participating clubs; Mogi Basquete also makes its return

Vasco It is Botafogo are back to NBB. This season, with the two Rio clubs, plus the Mogi Basketball, the league will have its largest number of participants in history: 19 teams will compete in the most important basketball tournament in the country. Thus, the seal withdrawn by Brazilian Basketball Confederation (CBB) which guaranteed legitimacy as a national championship did not weaken the competition.

However, the clear river did not receive the expected investment and will not be in contention for the title this season. O Universe It was once a big club in the league, but it will only be able to return the following year representing Niterói (RJ). On the other hand, the Brasilia continues in the tournament, despite the financial problems faced recently.

In this way, seven states will be represented in the 2023/2024 season, in addition to the Federal District: Rio Grande Sul, Paraná, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, Ceará It is Paraíba. It is worth noting that the CBB sought out all NBB clubs to leave the league and compete in the Brazilian Championship that the institution organizes.

However, the vast majority refused the offer. Still, there is an expectation that some teams will consider the possibility. The franchisees Universo/Niterói, Rio Claro and the Beach Club (from Uberlândia), who plan to be integrated into the next season, should also not accept the confederation’s invitation. Therefore, the CBB would have the same teams as last year.
