FIBA Rumors

In a meeting held on Tuesday in Munich, Germany, Euroleague Basketball presented a collaboration proposal to FIBA addressing the key points necessary for a fluid institutional cooperation, outlining the responsibilities of each organisation, defining a stable organisational framework looking forward and accepting the requests from FIBA. The meeting came after having made repeated requests during the last six months for conversations to be held, with the clubs accepting FIBA’s recent invitation to meet on this occasion.
The main points proposed by Euroleague Basketball were: 1.Definition of a collaboration agreement that establishes a stable, long-term framework in which mutual confidence plays a central role in execution. 2.Elimination of any sanctions on clubs and national teams, respecting both the freedom of clubs to decide their future as well as the national teams´ participation in competitions for which they have qualified, and the modification of those rules and regulations that currently allow such sanctions to be imposed.
