Nike officially announced the cancellation of the 2020 Elite Youth Basketball League due to the pandemic.
"As we continue to navigate the evolving impact of COVID-19, we are canceling the remainder of the 2020 EYBL season. This was not a decision taken lightly, but the health and safety of our athletes, families, fans and employees is our top priority. We look forward to bringing the EYBL back in 2021," released the company in a statement.
The EYBL is considered the top grassroots circuit featuring the highest rated high school players.
The events culminate with the Peach Jam in July, which is also considered the most prestigious AAU tournament.
