India to host 2 major FIBA events in 2017 - Feb 7, 2017

Anil's Articles

The Basketball Federation of India (BFI) is proud to announce that they have been allotted to host two international events in 2017- the FIBA Women's Asia Cup and FIBA U-16 Women's Asian Championship. This will be the first time since 2009 that India has hosted a major International Basketball Federation (FIBA) event. The FIBA Women's Asia Cup will be held from 23rd to 29th July 2017 in Bengaluru, Karnataka while the FIBA U-16 Women's Asian Championship will be held from 22nd to 28th October 2017 in Hyderabad, Telangana.

These important announcements were made at a press conference held in Bengaluru earlier this afternoon, that was presided by BFI President Sri K Govindaraj, Secretary-General Sri Chander Mukhi Sharma, and Sri Om Prakash, President of the Karnataka State Basketball Association & IPS (Retd.)

FIBA has allotted this event to India with utmost confidence and support, based on the steady increase in on-court quality of the Indian National Teams over the past two (2) years since the new leadership of the BFI, led by President K. Govindaraj and Secretary General Chander Mukhi Sharma, took over.

Over these last two (2) years, the Men's National Teams have been breaking historic ceilings by making the quarterfinals and eventually placing 8th in the 28th FIBA Asia Championship in 2015 and again making the quarterfinals and placing an all time best 7th Place in the FIBA Asia Challenge 2016. With these two events being hosted in India, the BFI looks to promote and develop the Women's National Teams to reach the same success as the Men's sides.

In 2009, the BFI was allotted the same two Championships - the 1st FIBA Asia U-16 Championship for Girls in Pune, Maharashtra and the 23rd FIBA Asia Championship for Women in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The opportunity to host both events again will prepare the BFI to begin hosting home and away FIBA Asia Qualifiers, which are scheduled to begin in November 2017.

Mr. K Govindaraj, who headed the bidding process, expressed his excitement, 'It has been far too long for Indian fans to get to see their homegrown talent compete against the best in Asia. While I am very excited and proud to be bringing a FIBA Asia event back to India, our work has just begun. We will ensure that our National Teams are optimally prepared to compete with the top teams of Asia.'

Mr. Chander Mukhi Sharma further added, 'We are grateful for FIBA to provide us with this opportunity and we will ensure to put on a world-class event to justify their confidence and support in the BFI. All the Indian basketball community should be excited and proud of this achievement.'

There will be 14 teams participating in both the FIBA Women's Asia Cup and the U16 Women's Asian Championship, with 8 teams in Division A (which include new Oceania teams Australia and New Zealand) and 6 in lower Division B.

India is in Division B in both the Senior and U16 events.

Mr Govindaraj also made the initial announcement regarding the conduct of a National League for Men later this year. Further details will be made public by March.
