Tip-off times confirmed for upcoming FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Qualifiers window
MUNICH (Germany) - The game schedule and tip-off times have been confirmed for the upcoming window of the FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Qualifiers, which will see the top European national teams back on the floor for official games for the first time since February.
Taking place in eight approved locations across Europe from November 27-30, the games of each group will be played in protected environment tournaments (bubbles) in order to ensure the health and safety of all participants.
Espoo (FIN), Istanbul (TUR), Ljubljana (SLO), Pau (FRA), Sarajevo (BIH), Valencia (ESP), Vilnius (LTU), Tallinn (EST) were confirmed as the locations of the bubbles last month.
The decision to play both the November and February windows in bubbles, instead of home and away games, was taken by the FIBA Executive Committee in September.
FIBA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Europe and communicate any further updates regarding its competitions if necessary.
