As confirmed by the president of the Greek Basketball Federation, Giorgos Vassilakopoulos, Greece has applied to host an Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
Here is what the experienced executive said in an interview with the Greek website Gazzetta.gr:
“We have already applied (to host an Olympic Qualifying Tournament). We have to pay a lot of money, though. We have to make the move and host the Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
But, the State has to help us financially. The Federation cannot afford to host the event.”
