AUGUSTA, GA, 11/13/2017:
Augusta Professional Sports, LLC is excited to announce that the American Basketball Association has awarded franchise rights to Augusta, Georgia, with the inaugural season set for 2018-2019. The ABA can trace its roots to the earliest days of professional basketball and shares a storied history with the National Basketball Association. Augusta Pro Sports is proud to partner with the American Basketball Association to bring professional basketball to the city of Augusta.
As proud citizens of the Augusta area and the owners of Augusta Pro Sports, we care deeply about the community and civic responsibility. As a part of our community-centric model, we are excited to hold a “Name the Team” contest, which will give the citizens of Augusta the opportunity to choose the name and colors of the team. Contest details will be published at a later date.
The city of Augusta deserves a professional basketball experience commensurate with the City’s passion and pride, and we plan to deliver just that.
Our organization is 100% veteran owned and operated and we bring a unique set of values to our team. With over 50 years of combined military service, we know that hard work and dedication will allow us to deliver the basketball team Augusta wants.
