The first-ever CEBL Championship Weekend is shaping up to be one of Canada's can't miss events on the sporting calendar.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan will serve as the host site for the inaugural Championship Weekend, which runs from Aug. 22-25 at the SaskTel Centre.

The top four teams in the league, including the host team (Saskatchewan Rattlers), will battle over the three days to crown the league's first champion.

On Thursday, the CEBL announced that as part of the Championship Weekend festivities the official DJ of the NBA Champion Toronto Raptors Kirk Stcyr, better known as "4Korners," will be the host DJ.

"I am thrilled to have 4Korners involved in the first-ever CEBL Championship Weekend being held in Saskatoon," said league CEO and Commissioner Mike Morreale.

"The Championship Weekend is not just a basketball event, it's a celebration of community, entertainment and the sport of basketball and what better way to do that than have such an influential artist set the tone for an electric time".

4Korners will be performing live on Friday, Aug. 23 at the Championship Weekend Street Concert and during the Finals on Sunday, Aug. 25. He'll also be made available for meet and greets according to the league's press release.

"I can't wait to host Championship Weekend in Saskatoon. It's gonna be awesome!" 4Korners said via press release. "I'm extremely excited about the growth of the game of basketball in Canada over the past few years - it's gone from hoop dreams to reality for so many young ballers from the North and I'm pumped about what the CEBL is building."

With just six weeks to go in the regular season, the Niagara River Lions have made themselves the team to beat this year with a 10-3 record.
