2021 Top 8 Finals

Last month, Basketball SA announced a new competition framework for 2022, together with changes to the Metro and District League 2021 finals series.

To conclude the 2021 Metro and District League seasons the final series will see the top 8 teams play off over three weekends and four finals rounds. The top 4 teams at the end of the minor rounds will have a double chance at progressing through the finals series. The bottom 4 teams of the top 8 will play elimination finals with the winners progressing and the losers’ season coming to an end.

This finals approach will apply to 2021 only due to the late changes that have occurred. For divisions with less than 8 teams, the Competitions Manager will review these individually and provide alternate finals information directly to impacted clubs.

All division grand finals will be played on Sunday, 31 October with venues to be confirmed.

Note: Youth League and District Seniors will play out Season 2021 as originally scheduled.
