More bubble basketball appears to be on the horizon at Walt Disney World.

Orlando will host eight early season college basketball events, including the Champions Classic, sources told CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein.

The other events reportedly being held in the Sunshine State are the Jimmy V Classic, preseason NIT, Orlando Invitational, Myrtle Beach Invitational, Charleston Classic, Wooden Legacy, and Diamond Head Classic.

The NCAA isn't expecting to permit fans in the bubble, Rothstein adds.

The Champions Classic annually marks the beginning of the Division I college basketball season. The tournament has been held at various locations since 2011 and features four of the top-ranked programs in the nation.

Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, and Michigan State headline this year's event.

The Battle 4 Atlantis, another marquee event on the schedule, is reportedly moving from the Bahamas to South Dakota due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The NCAA has not yet finalized the dates and times for the early season events.
