The 2020 Draft Candidate Combine was held in-canon between August 26-30, 2020 in the Roots Garden facilities near Plymouth, Massachusetts. Out of canon, the events were interspersed in over a week's worth of comments, interactions, and introductions of new FBA characters.

Every FBA draft candidate accepted to the 2020 FBA Draft was expected to attend and participate unless explicitly stated otherwise.

Deputy Commissioner's Introduction

Welcome all athletes to the home of the 2019-2020 FBA Champs! Over the next five days you will have a chance to show off your talent and skills to scouts and General Managers from around the league. You will be tested on a multitude of measurables including speed, strength, agility, shooting, and much more. There will also be designated times for interviews with the press and General Managers. This time will also give you a chance to meet the athletes who will make up your draft class. This is a great opportunity to start developing chemistry with players that might play on the very same team as you, or perhaps find a rival that will push you to greater heights as you challenge each other to be better. The league has rented out multiple floors of a hotel located near the Taproots’ facilities, and each athlete has been accommodated a room. Outside of the designated events athletes are free to explore Plymouth, but expect to be upheld to the same professional expectations we hold all FBA athletes to. This includes attending all skill trials at their designated time; tardy athletes will not be allowed to participate. Private practice courts are also available to athletes anytime they are not scheduled to participate in events or trials.

These next five days could very well be the difference come Draft Day, so make sure you take full advantage of the events and interviews! Below you will find a daily schedule, and you may sign up for any available interview slots here.

Best of luck,

Raymond Seaver

FBA Deputy Commissioner
