The 39th European Basketball Championship for women in 2023 will take place in Slovenia and Israel. The European basketball federation, FIBA Europe, announced this today.
Tel Aviv and the Slovenian cities of Koper and Celje will host the group stage. The final phase will take place in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. Austria was also a candidate, but bites in the sand. It will be the first organization for both Slovenia and Israel. It is the fourth time that a European Basketball Championship for women has been organized in more than one country.
The 2021 European Women’s Basketball Championship will take place in Strasbourg and Valencia later this month. Slovenia is in the group of the Belgian Cats in Strasbourg.
The draw for the 2023 European Championship qualifiers will take place in August. The first qualifying matches are scheduled for November. Striking: Slovenia and Israel complete the qualifications at their own request, because it is difficult to organize friendly matches in preparation for the European Championship. (belga)
