Exclusive: At the initiative of Georgia, Black Sea Basketball Championship to be established
Exclusive information voiced by the President of the Georgian Basketball Federation Paata Guraspauli during the program Timeout.
“We know the Adriatic League; we know the different leagues. We thought about creating something similar in our region.
At the initiative of Georgia, we have raised the issue of holding the Black Sea Championship in FIBA. We can also call it the Cup. We have already received verbal consent from 5-6 teams and the FIBA is discussing technical and legal issues.
You know that our Secretary General Giga Kartvelishvili, in addition to being a member of the FIBA Board, is also the head of the Commission on Legal Issues. He has daily, intensive communications with representatives of the countries of the region, as well as with members of the FIBA Board and Commission. I believe that the countries of the Black Sea region will take part in the championship, it will contribute to the development of Georgian basketball”, – Paata Guraspauli said.
