China News Agency, Beijing, June 5th: It has been determined that the CBA league, which restarts on June 20th, will complete the remaining 16 rounds of the regular season through two stages. In order to prevent the spread of the epidemic and ensure the safety of the event, the semi-finals will be conducted in the form of tournament system + empty court. Yao Ming, chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association, said that the prevention and control of the epidemic is the top priority in the CBA rematch work, and hopes that the CBA will start on time next season.
The schedule of the first stage of the quarter-finals announced by CBA shows that the 20 teams are divided into two groups, playing in Qingdao, Shandong and Dongguan, Guangdong from June 20 to July 4, respectively. Qingdao Division: Qingdao Guoxin Double Star, Xinjiang Elite, Liaoning Bengang, Zhejiang Guangsha Holdings, Beijing Shougang, Zhejiang Chouzhou Bank, Nanjing Tongxi Zhouguang, Shanghai Jiushi, Times China Guangzhou, Bayi Nanchang; Dongguan Division: Dongguan, Guangdong Bank, Shanxi Dongxiong, Shanxi Fenjiu, Beijing Holdings, Jiutai Rural Commercial Bank, Fujian Leopard Force, Shenzhen Marco Polo, Suzhou Kendiya, Sichuan Wuliangjinzun, Tianjin Pioneer.
In the first stage of the semi-finals, there are 2-3 games per day in each zone, and 39 games were played in 15 days (a total of 78 games in both zones).
It is reported that in the second stage of the regular season, 20 teams will be concentrated in a competition area to determine the top 12 to participate in the playoffs. The playoffs adopt a 1-1-3-3 system, that is, 12 into 8 and 8 into 4 are single defeat knockouts, and the semi-finals and finals adopt 3 wins and 2 wins. The entire schedule is expected to be completed within two months.
Affected by the epidemic, many CBA teams currently have foreign aid unable to return to the team. Under the premise of ensuring that the original competition rules are basically unchanged in the semi-finals, the rules for the use of foreign aid are adjusted: before the start of the semi-match, if the team applies for suspension of the use of all foreign aid of the team, it will be regarded as a Chinese team. When the All-Chinese team played against a team with foreign aid, the opponent's foreign aid could only be played in 4 quarters and 4 times. In the fourth quarter, foreign aid could only be played in 1 time.
After the Chinese Basketball Association "Official Proclamation" CBA restarted on the 4th, the Chinese Basketball Association Chairman Yao Ming accepted the media interview. He said that the prevention and control of the epidemic is still the top priority in the CBA rematch work. The Chinese Basketball Association and the tournament organizers have fully considered various possibilities and details. "Internal anti-rebound and external anti-input are not only in the sports industry, but in every industry. We have also formulated special measures for special periods to balance the possibilities as much as possible, but we must also take into account fairness."
For the preparation of the Chinese men's basketball team for the Tokyo Olympic loss and CBA next season, Yao Ming said that at present the first step is to ensure the smooth progress and completion of the CBA league this season, and then consider next season on this basis. "I hope that CBA will start on time next season. The normal holding of next season is also to ensure that there are sufficient competition and preparation time for the Olympic Games. This is a set plan. Any change will cause some chain reaction. We hope that everyone will work hard to put the whole The law breaks back on track." (End)
