It is easy to organise a league of this magnitude for popular sports like Cricket, however to find team owners and sportspersons interested in a league like this for sports such as volleyball and basketball is quite difficult. People showed some interested towards this and that gave us the motivation to organised the first season of CBL & CVL. After seeing the success and positive response in the first season, we came up with the second season that looks to provide greater benefits to franchise owners, coaches, players and technical staff.
