What changes have you noticed since you took office as head of the NBA Africa? Amadou Fall: This year we are meeting all the records, we will soon be present on the entire African continent in one way or another. This is due to long-standing agreements that we have with partners such as Canal +, ESPN, Al Jazeera or Company C Africa covering many countries. Last week for example I could see the Lakers game against Dallas in a bar in Nairobi Kenya and I think it’s great because it brings together people of basketball.
Amadou Fall Rumors
You’re talking about starts, what are the plans and objectives of the African basketball? Amadou Fall: Our mission revolves around the development of basketball at its root. We must make this sport more accessible. Unlike football, which can be played anywhere with anything, basketball requires a ground ball, baskets and it is our role to get involved in the development of this infrastructure so that even in the remotest corners , kids can play basketball soon. As in my case, many players begin later in Africa (at 16) and lose a lot of years because they have not been exposed to basketball before. Our efforts also concentrate on developing local expertise; we are investing a lot to organize seminars to train staff (coaches, referees). We also hope that viewers have the opportunity to see NBA games. We do a lot of effort so that our meetings are broadcast on national television in Africa. Young people are very attracted by basketball but also by the “lifestyle around the sport.
