The NBXL is a new professional basketball league featuring teams across the United States and one in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and Mexico set to play a national and international league schedule starting in 2021.
Since 2009, Christian Villar, league founder/owner has been studying why so many team, leagues, and sports venture fail. But instead of just studying he decided to try a business model that would work using a single team entity to get real experience and prove to himself it can be done by doing it alone so no one else would make him fail. A decade later after traveling nationally and internationally with the NJ-Pros, a team he created from scratch and plays for; team playing in different pro leagues in the USA; leaving leagues to go in dependent and playing against pro basketball team from other professional leagues and top national basketball institutions like USA Basketball; meeting with NBA Deputy Commissioner; and going from playing in small gyms to NBA arenas the time for NBXL league to succeed where so many have failed has arrived. It all starts with leadership, research, and actual experience. Then the rest is just finding a group of like minded individuals that are financially stable to make it work.
He has figured out exactly what works, what doesn’t, and most importantly the loopholes that exist but no one is taking advantage of. He has established relationships, credibility with other leagues, owners, agents, players, institutions and businesses that provide a wealth of resources that few may have to access to. His 15 yrs of professional experience as an entrepreneur and consultant both in the business and nonprofit sectors also helps. Taking risks and making visions into reality is nothing new to Villar because he practices what he preaches to his clients. Three years ago he set out to create his own independent sneaker company/brand, The Pros Brand, while being told that because so many have tried and fail it couldn’t be done. Let’s just say he went from not having shoes to wear as a young boy in the Dominican Republic to now walking in his own shoes in every sense of the word because he not only created such brand/company but also opened a store to sell them in as well. The NBXL is nothing new for Villar, just like The Pros Brand and NJ-Pros is just a continuation of the vision.......stay tuned!!
