The FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament will be taking place in Belgrade from 4 to 9 July 2016 and will guarantee the winning team a place in this summer’s Olympic Games. Besides Serbia, the participating teams are Czech Republic, Angola, Japan, Latvia, and Puerto Rico.
The Basketball Federation of Serbia is highly honoured to be hosting one of the three FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments. This tournament will bring Serbian people the amazing pleasure of enjoying some of the best basketball there is.
The Basketball Federation of Serbia, along with their supporters, is likely to break records when it comes to this tournament. By winning this tournament, Serbia could be having both men’s and women’s basketball teams competing at the Olympics, for the first time after the Olympics in Seoul back in 1988. For the first time in history, both teams would be represented at the Olympics in Rio 2016 under the Serbian flag.
