Affected by the epidemic, last season's WCBA was suspended after the 18th round of the regular season, and then had to end early this June. In just a few months, the 2020-2021 season of the league officially opened.
This year’s league is relatively special. Taking into account the preparations for the Tokyo Olympics, the WCBA league period has been shortened to more than three months, and the game will be conducted in a tournament system. The first stage of the regular season (October 1-30) will be held in Chengdu, and the second stage (December 1-21) will be held in Hohhot.
According to the record of each team, the top twelve of the regular season will enter the playoffs, and the playoffs will start from December 26 to January 5 next year. The specific venue will be determined according to the regular season situation. Due to the epidemic, there will be no foreign aid in this year's WCBA league, so this also puts forward higher requirements for the local players of each team.
In addition, one of the biggest changes in the WCBA this year is the introduction of three-player basketball games. It is reported that the coaching staff of each team in the three-person basketball match is consistent with the league, and players from all teams can participate. The regular season rounds and matches of three-man basketball are the same as those of the five-a-side competition, which will be held on the second day of the five-a-side competition. This also means that each team needs to increase three-person basketball practice in their daily training.
It is reported that this season's WCBA has formulated strict anti-epidemic measures to implement closed management for sports teams, referees, record desk personnel, and media reporters who belong to the green zone.
