Eurobasket 2015: France formalize their candidacy

Will Ukraine convince FIBA-Europe in its ability to organize the next Eurobasket? Shaken by a secessionist crisis in the south, Ukraine could be withdrawn from the organization of the male Eurobasket 2015 by the European instance of the Basketball.

France, which had expressed intention to mediate in part the event has formalized its candidacy by sending an official letter from the Federation (FFBB) to FIBA according information released by L’Equipe.

“This is a simple letter of intention without commitment if Ukraine cannot organize. It will be a long process,” said Jean-Pierre Siutat Tuesday, FFBB President.

Mired in a financial and political crisis, Ukraine has initially resigned the organization of Eurobasket 2015 before the FIBA fixed the date of May 15 for a final decision on whether or not it will be able to host the competition.
