Atlantic Lottery’s PRO•LINE Joins Forces With MWBA

The Maritime Women’s Basketball Association has added to its family of partners.

Atlantic Lottery’s PRO•LINE has joined the seven-team MWBA which is preparing to open its third season of elite competition with a full slate of games across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Medavie and Royale Tissue are continuing their founding partnerships with the MWBA, working with the league since its inception in 2022.

Atlantic Lottery’s PRO•LINE joins the partnership group as Title Sponsor for the MWBA’s Championship Week, slated for Dartmouth, NS, from June 22 to 23.

‘We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Atlantic Lottery and its PRO•LINE brand into the MWBA fold and family,’ said Julie Naugler, the manager of business development for Sports & Entertainment Atlantic (S|E|A) which is the MWBA’s marketing firm out of Halifax. ‘The MWBA has shown considerable growth not only in terms of expanding to seven teams from the initial six this season, but in finding a major following of fans and partners who are watching first-hand the maturation of a quality league.’

Atlantic Lottery is publicly owned by the four Atlantic provinces and is the region’s only online gaming and sports betting provider that is 100 per cent legal and government regulated. 100 per cent of lottery profit stays in Atlantic Canada each and every year to help fund essential services like health care, education and infrastructure.

Atlantic Lottery has returned more than $11-billion in total profit to the region since its inception in 1976, however, knows that building stronger communities is about more than profits returned. That’s why Atlantic Lottery is proud to support more than 100 festivals and events that help bring the community together and help celebrate all the things that make the Atlantic region so unique.

The MWBA will open on three fronts Saturday, May 4.

It all begins when Lake City 56ers of Dartmouth welcome reigning Legacy Cup champion Halifax Thunder to Cole Harbour High School.

Game time is 3 p.m.

At 6 p.m., Fredericton Freeze entertain the Moncton Mystics at Richard J. Curre Center and an hour later, Port City Fog welcome Miramichi Her-icanes to Saint John’s TD Station.

Last year’s championship was held at TD Station and established an MWBA record crowd of 1,209.

On Sunday, May 5, Lake City visits Halifax Hornets at Mount St. Vincent University and Fredericton plays the Her-icanes at Miramichi Valley High School.

Both games are set for 3 p.m.
