    Our Basketball Federation President is drunk of egocentrism.

    It's absurd the Spanish bet when we're going to have the World Championship on 2014!
    FIRE THE NEXT ONE!!!

    Looks like that they are going to change the sistem after 2015. Jose Luis Saez made an preposition that eurobasket will not be played in countries but in cities from diffrent countries. Looks like that Fiba is very fond of it because this will reduce cost of orgranization...

    What do you guys think about this? Is it a good idea? Is there a decent possibility of it actually happening?
    First of all, they must reduce once again the number of teams to max. 16! This Eurobasket will be a total failure in terms of attendance in the 1st round. Not to mention the Huuuuuge margins we are gonna see due to the enormous differences in quality of the teams...

    Once this is done, the whole organisation will be brought back to decent levels so that one country/city can host the entire event...

    For god's sake, it's not the Eurovision song contest! With 24 teams playing, the only ones left out are Lichtenstein, Malta, Andorra, Cyprus etc.!And they can't even give you a nice "douze points" when you need one!

    I disagree. The only problem with this EC is that the groups are unequal, but that's just chance, it should be better next time. For me, more teams means more games, and if those games don't interest you, you can skip the first stage and start watching when there are only 12 teams left. More week teams doesn't mean that there will be less interesting games, perhaps just more boring games, but no-one's forcing you to watch them.

    As for attendance, are you kidding me? A total failure? Most tickets are sold already. This might be the most successful Eurobasket in terms of attendance, definitely #1 by the total number of tickets, probably even one of the best in terms of average attendance.

    You do realise the contradiction in your sentence, right?

    I'll believe this when I see sold-out arenas in the matches like Fyrom-Montenegro or Belgium-Georgia...

    I haven't been paying as much attention as I'd like recently, but if i understood correctly Lithuania is finally taking the risk by selling tickets for the individual games? at least some percent of it?

    I also have to disagree 24 teams are too many.
    1st of all Fiba wants cash and this way they'll get that

    After those 10 standard teams (France, Spain, Germany, Russia, Lithuania, Greece, Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia), Latvia is competitive, Bosnia has the potential to get far one day, UK is assembling a good team, Montenegro will join the top10, Italy also shouldn't be questionable and Israel will surprise people sooner or later... there you've got yourself a strong core of 16 teams that could theoreticaly fight for a medal if things go their way.
    Those 8 teams remaining might not be able to compete for medals, but they can either be put into a basketball marginality without any hope to improve if they don't miracously produce another Dirk, or they can be given a chance to try to catch up someday. FYROMacedonia or Georgia for example might not need a lot to do that actually...

    you've set a really bad example by this

    2013 in Slovenia, Fyrom - Montenegro will easily be sold out, while basketball happens to be the no.1 sport in Georgia with their NT having occasional 10.000 attendance and few 1000 fans are expected in Lithuania, meaning they'll outshine some supposed "powerhouses" combined when it comes to attendance

    When it comes to recent attendance, I don't think it's really possible that fans would be missed, as some pretty strong teams with long tradition don't assemble more than 500 untill the elimination stage, anyway...

    Where's the contradiction? Think about it.

    Perhaps you misunderstood me: by saying "more" and "less" I was talking about the number of games, not the general quality of all games. I was trying to say that although there will be games like Ukraine - Bulgaria, the games like Lithuania - Spain won't disappear (there won't be less of them) an you're always free to ignore the games that don't interest you.

    I hope I made myself clear now.

    Germany's bid now beside France includes Zagreb and Milano as well

    I've got an idea... let's just determine London, Moscow, Istambul and Madrid as the regular group stage venues, Berlin and Paris as the elimination stage and Rome for the final venue... we're covered for the next 20 years and spared of over sugarly pan-european cross border organisation plans and once more, noone will be held responsible if any european championship will be as dissastrous as the one in Sweden since you can't hold 7 federations responsible.


    If Fiba Europe would't include as much power from basketball marginal countries (still searching for a logical translation of vukojebina) such as Andora, Luksemburg or Cyprus I would at least have hope that the organisation would've lol'd once or twice at such fairy tales and go with the best candidate, but this way I am afraid they might as well go with this plan.

    Germans, no dissrespect, but if you desire to organise such an event, do your best and do it on your own. Candidature of 4 countries is just not serious and if a country as Germany isn't able to put in the resounces to succesfully hold an european championship, than they shouldn't get one. This co-hosting is for my criteria acceptable for smaller economies that basicaly wouldn't be able to do it all on their own, even if given their best.
    I normaly don't do that, but this time I'm praying this plan fails for the sake of bball.

    According to Danko Radić (president of Cro federation) Eurobasket 2015 will 99% be held in Germany, France, Italy and Croatia.

    4 countries for one tournament? Really? What the fuck..

    you mean the Great Britain team that qualified properly, while Italy had to rely on FIBA changing the rules? It's not a history contest, it's all about what's happening right now, my friend.

    Belgium also qualified legitimately, while Bosnia and Ukraine (for example) had to also rely on FIBA bailing them out. I think your 'East / South Europe' theory is quickly unravelling.....

    You sure he didn't mean ONE OF those four will host it?

    I hope Macedonia can host something, though I doubt it. We hosted the UEFA Women's U-19 European Championship! That counts for something, right? ..

    That'd be very interesting, but considering the crisis Portugal is going through I don't know... I'm not for big time events at this moment. I suppose new arenas would have to be built.
