FIBA U17W - All Baskets Count raises 307,709 Czech Korunas in Pilsen and Klatovy

PILSEN/KLATOVY (FIBA U17 World Championship for Women) - The Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship and FIBA are proud to announce that a sum of 307,709 Czech Korunas (11,211 Euro) has been raised through the All Baskets Count (ABC) social responsibility programme associated with the tournament.

The amount raised stood at 281,536 Czech Korunas entering the final day of the competition, with a further 26,173 added to the tally on Sunday.

All the proceeds will be used to help improve the quality of life of people in need in the region of West Bohemia, where the Championship took place.

Launched in 2007, ABC is a charity project which has grown rapidly over time and nowadays includes all basketball stakeholders in the Czech Republic - from players to teams, as well as referees and, of course, fans.

The programme featured in a global competition for the first time at the 2010 FIBA World Championship for Women.

All Baskets Count was activated for the FIBA U17 World Championship for Women, with the international basketball federation pledging to donate €10 for every made three-pointer, while the Czech Basketball Federation (CBF) contributed €4 for every single point scored by the Czech team.
