First of all I think that bringing a sporting event to a single city isn't the aim of any federation (olympic games excluded), secondly I think that Greece is already organising a mass of big sporting events and I don't find it great if there are 3 countries exchanging big events. Let's face it, if that was the aim of FIBA, then all Eurobaskets could be organised exclusively in Spain, France, Greece, Germany...Let's add Italy.
That goes for Olympic games, FIFA WC, UEFA EURO as well.

Were you ever in those Arenas? Zetra cannot be expanded and it already was renovated. But its simply bad for any sport that's not on ice. Why do you think that Bosnia plays their games in Skenderija basically all the time? Skenderija is outdated and its not even close to Dom Sportova in Zagreb.. yet alone to some halls that would actually be in Croatian bid.

there is also Borik in Banja Luka, about 3k
Borik? Be serious.. its already expanded up to the maximum and there's absolutely nothing you can do there to expand it even more.

SCG Arenas were FAR better, modern and bigger. BiH bid doesn't have main arena.. like SCG had with huge Belgrade Arena.

Only hope for BiH is to build some 15k+ arena and cohost with some neighbor.

What would that everything be? Facts that halls in BiH are outdated, too small and simply not good enough for tournament of this size? Oh well.. what do i know. I'm sure that all other bidders are considering abandoning their bids after they've seen BiH bid.

I see that you have problems with someone stating the obvious, so let's move on.

Germany and Croatia surely have the best infrastructure. Slovenia is competitive only with new Stožice arena in Ljubljana (12.500) and partly with Zlatorog arena in Celje (6000). But if Slovenia and Croatia have joined bid, we can host Eurobasket for sure.

Slovenia&Croatia seems very nice but tell me guys - what about this constant reconstructions of motorways in Slovenia? The traffic there easilly turns into a horror...

the question does not concern about which country deserves it most, rather which bid is the best one, to be righteous!this must be clear to everybody here!

What about Italy ? we are waiting a top basketball event since the 1991 Euros

It's a shame for a country where basketball is the 2nd sport and has always been one of the top leagues in the world ...

We have yet lost the 2014 worlds for nothing against Spain

No, not really. Slovenia as a gate to Adriatic hardly accomodates current traffic.

I hope you watch NLB league,or something like that.

Our arenas are not the best,they must get better,but halls and arenas are far ahead of BiH.

Beside Belgrade Arena (~20k),Spens (~11k),Millenium (~4k) which are in very good condition,i have to put out newly built Smederevo hall(3.5k) and Crystal hall in Zrenjanin (~4k) .



Beside these,4k Jezero in Kragujevac which is very nice and other two: Cair (6.5k) and Pionir (6.5k) which are ready for renovation. Or to be precise,in Nis the new Emparor Constantin Arena (~9k) will replace Cair.

So,tell me how can either of BiH halls come close? Only one i like is that hall in Siroki,which i saw when Radnicki played Siroki in NLB.

Others... Just like Spicy told.

As far as who will get to host... Croatia. My pick.

I read somewhere that Greece will bid. I think it will be something like this:
Athens-Olympic Sports Hall-18,700
Athens-Helliniko Indoor Arena-14,500
Piraeus-Peace & Friendship Stadium-13,000
Thessaloniki-PAOK Arena-8,142
Larissa-Larissa Neapolis Arena-5,500
Heraklion-Heraklion Arena-5,222

Also, what will be the capacity of the new arena in Volos that will be used for the Med Games?

The "news" are from an obscure article in FIBA's site from 2009. I wouldn't count on that much.

Greece won't bid and Greece didn't bid. Is it so hard to read this thread a bit?
