Activities

  • FIBA Organizer
    The FIBA Organizer project was initiated to complement FIBA New Applications by extending this system and creating a direct link to the players at grassroots and professional levels, through their National Federations Regional Entities to FIBA.
  • Event Data System
    As previous LOCs could not rely on the experience of previous organizers and events, most of them used to develop their own IT solution starting from scratch. FIBA has decided to use a unified and standardised data system for all its future events.
  • FIBA New Application
    In 1998 FIBA`s IT Department started with the development of a database which shall serve as a repository of official data for FIBA and the 5 FIBA Zones. The aim was to offer a tool which enables us to collect and share information in the FIBA Family. It is now a core system at FIBA, FIBA Europe, FIBA Africa and FIBA Americas and has recently been implemented at FIBA Oceania and FIBA Asia.
