Mission Statement

Our #1 goal is to develop better basketball players and an entertaining basketball product!  And to create a space for more players to get PAID for playing at a professional level.

The Virtual Basketball Association is aiming to be the standard in online sports gaming leagues.  Run by Renaissance Gaming, the VBA ProAm Association (PAA) will consist of teams, with real owners, and real coaches running real NBA systems.  The VBA Team-Up Association (TUA) will be run with the official NBA teams and rosters and is a "for fun" league, without the extreme seriousness of the PAA.

The VBA is a member of the International eSport Basketball League Alliance.
