Indianapolis IN, Evelyn Magley CEO of The Basketball League announces the newest expansion market has been awarded to Boston MA.
The South Shore Monarchs is the 5th new market added this off season & 17th overall team for the 2021 season.
Owned and operated by Damon Harper a Boston entrepreneur who also owns a successful Sports management firm. He chose Boston because of its demographics, talent base, community need and tradition of supporting Basketball.
“Believing that nothing happens on accident We are thrilled to bring this concept of a community engaged pro basketball experience to our home town. The South Shore area of Boston has plenty of local talent, a great fan base and tremendous need for a partner who wants to impact youth in a positive manner, so I am confident the market can support this exciting initiative” – Damon Harper CEO South Shore Monarchs
As for TBL, an opportunity to go to a tradition rich area like Boston which adds to a strong geographic northeast division (Jamestown NY, Syracuse NY, Albany NY & Paterson NJ), as well as having a community focused visionary like Damon Harper at the helm was simply a ‘no-brainer’.
“Visiting with Damon and hearing his heart and passion for his community will certainly bring new life, excitement and job opportunities. I believe that leveraging the gifts that our young men possess to impact the local area is the most significant thing we do.” – Evelyn Magley CEO TBL
