The city's new professional sports franchise will be called the Moncton Miracles, the Times & Transcript has learned.

Moncton is a member of the National Basketball League of Canada, a seven-team circuit that will begin its inaugural season in late October. Other franchises are Saint John, Halifax, Summerside, Quebec City, London, Ont., and Oshawa, Ont.

A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday to announce Moncton's team name, colours and logo and to introduce head coach and general manager Norris Bell. Owner Steven Conville couldn't be reached for comment.

The 'Moncton Miracle' is a term that's commonly used to describe the city's impressive rebound from recession in the mid-1980s to a thriving economy today. Moncton is the fastest growing urban centre in Atlantic Canada, the 10th fastest growing Census Metropolitan Area in Canada and it's known as the retail hub of the Maritimes.
