EYBL: Twenty-one teams set to represent England in 2022/23 competition

Twenty one sides, including EABL programmes Myerscough and Sheffield, are set to take part in this season's European Youth Basketball League (EYBL).

Since its creation in the late 1990s, the EYBL has grown significantly over the years to include more than 175 teams from 25 countries across five age groups, including one of the most hotly contested U20 competitions in Europe.

Myerscough will be in Group D of the EYBL North's Junior competition for U20s, while The Sheffield College are competing in Group C of the EYBL South.

The two sides are joined across the U20 competition by eight other English teams, with London United and Bracknell Cobras lining up with Myerscough in Group D, whilst London Lions, Crest Academy, Moulton College, St Charles College, London Elite and Oasis Basketball Academy will all be flying the flag in the South with Sheffield.

Myerscough celebrate after their 2019 regular season success

Myerscough begin their third EYBL campaign today, playing five games in the next three days in Valmiera, Latvia.

Having been crowned regular-season champions back in 2019, the North West programme will be keen to hit the ground running after the competition's pandemic-induced hiatus.

The teams in the EYBL South's U20s competition will have to wait until 27-30 October for their first taste of the action, with games taking place in Bucharest, Romania.

Elsewhere in the EYBL, London Elite have teams in the U13s, U14s, U15s and U17s, with Oasis Basketball Academy also joining their cross-capital neighbours in the U17s.

Baltic Stars have an impressive five teams in this year's competition, from U13s to U17s, whilst Surrey-based True Vision Elite are also in the U17 category.
