FIBA Europe hosts Women's Baltic Basketball League representatives in Munich

MUNICH (Germany) - FIBA Europe recently hosted a meeting with the representatives from the Women's Baltic Basketball League to explore potential collaborations aimed at advancing the development and promotion of women's basketball in the region.

The meeting was attended by FIBA Europe President Jorge Garbajosa and FIBA Executive Director Europe Kamil Novak, as well as their counterparts Arvydas Klovas, President of the WBBL, and Alvydas Jocys, the league's Chief Executive Officer - both of whom also serve the same roles within the Women's Lithuanian Basketball League.

The key topics discussed included strategic initiatives for the advancement of women's basketball across the Baltic region and the possible expansion of the league's geographic scope - currently comprised of teams from Latvia and Lithuania - to include additional countries within the region.

Women in Basketball is one of FIBA's key strategic pillars, and welcomes the initiative of the national federations in continuing to push the sport forward.

With Lithuania also confirmed as co-hosts for FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2027, discussions were also held around making FIBA Europe's flagship event an accelerator for women's basketball in the country and across the region.

The initial meeting sets out the first steps towards potential future collaborations ahead of a key period for the sport in the current cycle.
