Since its formation in 1932, FIBA has achieved a lot and seen strong development in all areas of basketball.
Now, the time has come to take the step up to the next level, in order to see our sport reach new heights.
A consistent strategy with clear objectives and an explicit road map for implementation to achieve these goals has been set out for the period 2011-2018. We have defined the values that represent the core merits of basketball and, along with a clear vision for our sport, those will now guide us through all of our activities.
As a result of the newly-formulated values and vision, FIBA’s mission has been extended to include the unifying of the community, along with the promotion and development of our sport.
In order to keep track of what we want to achieve, FIBA has identified 10
strategic objectives that will guide the whole organisation and its members over the coming years.
In the following pages you will find our entire strategy which will help us take the step up to that next level.
