The Virtual Basketball Association is aiming to be one of the premier online 2k leagues by developing the most well-rounded and versatile players and delivering the most entertaining and realistic basketball product in all of 2K.  Run by the Renaissance Gaming team, the VBA PRO LEAGUE (ProAm Association) will consist of ready-to-run franchises with real owners and real coaches, running real NBA systems. So if you are looking to go beyond just  "Comp" play or looking for help getting noticed in the 2K community, the VBA has you covered.

The VBA will:

  • Always open to all players of all skill levels that adhere to VBA Social Standards

  • Offer advanced coaching and player skill development for all players

  • Will offer social media and player image/brand review and development

  • Offer a toxic-free 2k playing environment


The VBA will serve as an experience and exposure league, allowing ALL players a platform to show their complete skill set to a wider audience and get help presenting their game to scouts on ALL levels.  However, our goal is to also become an "all player paid league", where all of our talented players will get paid for their services playing in and promoting the league.  Our Operations team will aggressively recruit the available talent to take the court with our DEVELOPED talent, and our Marketing team will be aggressively seeking sponsors to bring in revenues for the league and the individual franchises which will go first to PLAYERS.


The VBA Pro League is FREE for all players to join and play.

The Virtual Basketball Association is aiming to be the standard in online esports gaming leagues.

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