FIBA vs Euroleague – What is in the best interest of European Basketball?
Even if the current dispute seems to be focused on the national team calendar, essentially it is about the governance model of European Basketball, i.e. who is in charge of managing the European Basketball, scheduling the games, running the top competition, setting the rules of “(the business of) basketball”, in summary who sets the tone for the highest level (club) competition in Europe. The aim of this report is to take an objective look at the current situation from a more holistic perspective and take into consideration the interests of all key stakeholders, i.e. not only top clubs, but also all other clubs participating domestic leagues, local federations, sponsors, athletes, referees, managers etc.
