The Oilers are set to face tough competition from teams such as Al Ahly (Egypt), Al Ahly Benghazi (Libya), and Bangui (Central African Republic).

The 2024 BAL Nile Conference is scheduled to kick off on April 19 at the Dr Hassan Moustafa Sports Hall in Egypt.

With Nesba at the helm, the City Oilers are gearing up for intense battles on the court as they aim to make a mark in the tournament.

Nesba is the NBA Academy Africa player development coach who also played for AS Sale.

His experience and expertise are expected to be invaluable assets for the City Oilers as they navigate the challenges of the BAL competition.

In addition to the coaching appointment, the Oilers are also making moves to strengthen their roster. Fallando Jones and Dane Miller are set to join the team, adding further depth and talent ahead of their campaign in Cairo.
