DBL INDONESIA


Established in 2004 as a humble basketball league with very strong student-athlete fundamentals – student first, then athlete – DBL Indonesia has now become a youth development company that focuses on developing future Indonesian leaders through sports and entertainment. Every year, DBL Indonesia through its verticals connects with millions of youth in almost all provinces in Indonesia, from Aceh in the most-western part of the archipelago to Papua in the most-eastern. DBL Indonesia transcends the barriers for future Indonesian leaders to make their dreams come true.

SPORTS TEAM MANAGEMENT

SPORTS TEAM MANAGEMENT

From student-athlete, U-19 to professional players, DBL Indonesia has strong experience in sports team management. Our DBL Indonesia All-Stars are the first Indonesian players to have ever played in an official NBA arena and at a halftime show during an NBA game.



Since 2008, DBL Indonesia has been consistently sending its best student-athletes to the U.S., Australia, and other countries to participate in basketball clinics, friendly games and cultural-exchange trips.


DBL Indonesia managed Indonesia's U-18 National Men's Basketball Team that finished as runner-up at the SEABA Championship in Singapore and had qualified to participate in the FIBA Asia U-18 Championship in Mongolia for the first time after 17 years.



PERSEBAYA SURABAYA


Since 2017, DBL Indonesia managed Indonesia’s legendary football club from Surabaya, Persebaya, saving the team after four-year of absence in Indonesia’s football scene. In its first year, Persebaya won Indonesia’s second division league, Liga 2, and recorded the highest number of total spectators for an Indonesian football club. Persebaya now plays in Indonesia’s major league, Liga 1.

The first batch of 10,000 pairs of DBL Ardiles AZA 5 shoes produced were sold out in only two weeks. In May 2018, the third batch of production was released.

The Persebaya Store has grown rapidly following the success of the football club. In less than 10 months, the Persebaya Store has opened at least 10 stores that would often generate high traffic.




The Persebaya Jersey is 100 percent made in Indonesia. It is made from specially produced fabric with croco pattern, UV protection, and anti odor features.


Academy

ACADEMY

DBL Indonesia believes that character development is as important as, if not more than, fundamental athletic training. Our curriculum was designed by world-class technical directors to help students both in character building and sports training.


DBL Academy Technical Director Andrew Vlahov teaches 5-15 year-old students in our first training facility in Surabaya. Through a partnership model, the DBL Academy will soon arrive in more cities in Indonesia.


Every year, more than 300 DBL best student athletes from all over Indonesia fly to Surabaya East Java to join the DBL Camp, a three-day training camp with international basketball players and coaches – some of them are NBA players.
