FIBA EuroBasket 2017 logo unveiled

MUNICH, Germany (FIBA EuroBasket 2017) - The official FIBA EuroBasket 2017 logo was revealed to the world via FIBA’s social media platforms on Wednesday afternoon.

The logo draws inspiration from the ideal that basketball is its own universe, and at the centre of that universe is the EuroBasket trophy, with Europe the brightest shining star.

The distance from north to south between the four venues - Finland (Helsinki), Israel (Tel Aviv), Romania (Cluj-Napoca) and Turkey (Istanbul) - and the uniquely different geographical and cultural traditions that each of the hosts bring to the event also played a major role in the logo concept.



FIBA EuroBasket 2017 will take place from 31 August to 17 September 2017.

A downloadable version of the logo is available from FIBA EuroBasket’s new look website, www.fiba.basketball/EuroBasket.
