With the FTBL sold, the WTBL is the new league

The “Foreign Throwball League” or more commonly called the “FTBL” was sold Sunday post on April 15 by the Director and Owner of the league D. Wilson. In this same post, my partner D. Wilson also announced the creation of the Canadian Throwball League or the “CTBL”. All details about the teams and alignment in the CTBL are in this post. As it says in the creation post (not the one with the alignment announced but the one in the first sentence of this article), the CTBL will likely gauge interest in creating WTBL leagues in Europe, Latin America and the rest of the world.

Foreign Throwball Commissioner, D.Wilson, announces creation of the Canadian Throwball League.

As of 1:15 PM CST on Sunday, April 19, D.Wilson has announced the creation of a Canadian Throwball League.  The League will include 18 teams, 1 from each Canadian Province and Territory plus extra teams in other large Canadian Cities. The FTBL is being sold and being turned into a small basketball league. Al FTBL players are getting the rest of their contracts upfront. There should be no worries as the players full contracts have been payed to them. There are also talks of a Latin American league. Canada should be proud to introduce the CTBL. Please expect rumors of the Latin American League soon. C.Huff and I will be having meetings about it. Thank You.
