Greece is expected to be one of the candidates to host one of the four Olympic Qualifying Tournaments next summer.

The president of the Greek Basketball Federation, Giorgos Vassilakopoulos, revealed the news, while speaking with the Greek newspaper “Ta Nea”:

“Not only we intend to apply for hosting one of the four tournaments, but we have already calculated the budget of the event, and we will soon start our talks with the Greek state on this matter.

We have proved as a federation that despite the Greek financial crisis, we are still able to host big basketball events that can benefit the country.”
