Solution in sight for British Basketball

- Final decision postponed until 13th July 2007 -

GENEVA (FIBA Press Release) - England Basketball Chair Terry Donovan met in London yesterday, 14th June 2007, with FIBA Secretary General Patrick Baumann to analyze the current situation and to exchange information on the several discussions and meetings held over the past weeks with the UK Minister for Sport, Sport England, the British Olympic Association and the British Basketball League.

During the same day they also held a meeting with Lord Moynihan, Chairman of the British Olympic Association, and Tony Mallin, Chairman of the Mallin Review currently being undertaken to make recommendations to assist with the future development of basketball in England. As a result of this meeting, and based on the information received to-date, FIBA and FIBA Europe have determined that sufficient initial progress has been made to ensure that English basketball teams and players are closer to being admitted to play in European competitions.

Following assurances provided by the British Olympic Association that it will work with FIBA and England Basketball to secure a strong future for the sport in the United Kingdom and conscious of a number of positive steps taken by the Ministry and Sport England, which include the provision of a first "tranche" of public funding for England Basketball's programs, FIBA and FIBA Europe have today agreed to allow the participation of England teams and players in the forthcoming FIBA Europe events for the U18 Women (June 29th - July 8th) and the U16 Men (20th-29th July). British U20 teams will play 6th-15th July (Men) and 13th-22nd July (Women).

FIBA and FIBA Europe now urge the British Government and its agencies to resolve the remaining issues concerning England Basketball to ensure that the Senior Men and Women teams and players, as well as the other two age category teams and players, will be admitted to international competition. In this context, FIBA and FIBA Europe are prepared to extend the deadline for their decision to July 13th 2007 and have informed England Basketball, the British Olympic Association and the Ministry accordingly.

About FIBA

FIBA, the world governing body for basketball, is an independent association formed by 213 National Federations of basketball throughout the world. It is recognised as the sole competent authority in basketball by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Its main upcoming events are the 2007 FIBA Zone Continental Championships that will qualify for Beijing 2008, the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments (to take place in the summer of 2008) and the FIBA World Championships for Men and Women, held every four years. The 2010 FIBA World Championship will be played in Turkey.

Hopefully this pressure from FIBA would make UK basketball to move forward. The attitude of England Basketball Association is really surprising. I mean people who work like the sport and should do everything for it to become more popular and take it to a higher level but instead they isolate themeselves from the outside world. The clubs should do everything to get into European competitions as that's the only way to make progress.

We Can't host the Olympics and then not even enter a team..

Quote:Fresh hopes have emerged of a resolution to the dispute threatening the participation of British basketball teams at the London 2012 Olympics.

World governing body Fiba threatened to ban English teams after Sport England froze funding for England Basketball.

Fiba has now agreed to delay the decision until 13 July while further talks take place.

The British Olympic Association (BOA) said funding was frozen while the sport's future was being sorted out.

"We are totally committed to sending the strongest team we can to the London Olympic Games," said the BOA's Colin Moynihan.

"It is our goal that nothing should stand in the way of providing our young basketball stars of tomorrow with exposure to international competition and the opportunity to travel the road towards success in 2012.

"Good progress is now being made between Fiba, ourselves, the government and England Basketball which we believe will result in a positive outcome for the future of basketball at all levels in Britain."

GB must qualify for either the 2009 or 2011 European Championship finals in order to prove themselves good enough to play as hosts in the 2012 Olympics.

Thoughts?

Britain should put more effort. If they want to field a competitive team for Olympics then it will a huge task and it will take years. It is really disappoitning that their youth teams were not playing in international games. With the ULEB Cup planning to include an English team in next year's season it could be a good position for a start.

Couldn't agree more.

Never noticed this thread sorry.

Hopefully there will be a positive conclusion at the end of this for the British basketball fans among us.

Well in the end they didn't ban us

Still hope the Govt and EB can work together to get the future sorted out
