The CBA season of 2019-2020 returned on June 20, with all 20 teams set to play in Dongguan and Qingdao. These are the only cities that will host CBA games for the remainder of the season. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season was suspended on January 21 to uphold public health and safety requirements. Both locations for the games guarantee controled environments and ensure health supervision.
The games are played in empty stadiums. Encouraging banners are seen in the stands and sounds of audience members are heard.
The WCBA canceled the remainder of its season. Despite fans’ disappointment, the league representatives explained the next season is quickly approaching. Players must prepare for the National Games in August and the Tokyo Olympics.
