Following the decision of the Board of FIBA Europe to open the bidding process for EuroBasket and EuroBasket Women 2013, ten National Federations have expressed a written interest in staging the events.
Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and Slovenia have brought forward a potential candidature for the EuroBasket.
Belarus, France, Serbia and Slovakia are interested in hosting EuroBasket Women.
All Federations who have submitted the letter of interest will receive by mid-June 2010 the EuroBasket 2013 or EuroBasket Women 2013 Bid Dossier and the Event Manual which outlines in detail all the conditions and the various aspects of the bid.
After studying the two documents the countries who will be interested in submitting a formal candidature will have to do so by 31st August 2010.
A FIBA Europe Evaluation Commission will then visit the bidding countries in September and October 2010. Following those visits the Commission will prepare a report for the Board of FIBA Europe.
Each candidate Federation will also be invited to make a presentation at the autumn session of the Board, which will decide on the organisers of EuroBasket 2013 and EuroBasket Women 2013.

They have better arenas than half of Europe but there is nobody to play.

This point is 'moot' and no further discussion necessary. They DON'T deserve an EB tournament. Let the NBA go play it's exhibition games there and nobody is the wiser. To give you an example, in italy they do play cricket, so should that be a prerequisite for candidacy for an international cricket tournament? I think not. It all boils down to popularity, history and culture. They DON'T have it, so don't give me the 'promotion of the game bullshit scenario.' It don't cut it. Enough said on the Brits...
