A new fan-controlled basketball league is set to begin play in February.
Plans for a company called Fan Controlled Hoops were unveiled on Wednesday by the creators of a similar league – Fan Controlled Football – which is entering its third season.
There will initially be four teams in the new Atlanta-based basketball league, with two-time NBA All-Star Baron Davis co-owning one of the clubs. The company also tapped former National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts as a strategic advisor.
The format will be 4 vs 4, all over the pitch, with real-time interactivity with the fans. It will be similar to the fan-controlled football business, where fans can call attacking plays and vote on rules.
