GENEVA (FIBA Archive) - The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) is happy to announce the launching of archive.fiba.com, its new online archive site.
archive.fiba.com provides all basketball enthusiasts and media representatives with an up-dated and user-friendly tool which includes all sorts of historic basketball-related information.
The new FIBA archive site features data from past FIBA and FIBA Zones' national team competitions such as dates, location and final rankings of the various championships, game results, box-scores, head-to-head comparisons, all-time individual and collective records, player biographies and a myriad of other information.
archive.fiba.com will be up-dated on a day-to-day basis in order to remain a source of information for all future FIBA tournaments. In addition, FIBA will continue to enter past data into the system so that the information which is currently missing on its online archive (i.e. mainly related to basketball's early years) can be completed as early as possible.
FIBA (www.fiba.com), the world governing body for basketball, is an independent association formed by 213 National Federations of basketball throughout the world. It is recognised as the sole competent authority in basketball by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Its main upcoming events are the 2009 FIBA Zone Continental Championships that qualify for the 2010 FIBA World Championships for Men and Women, to take place in Turkey and in the Czech Republic respectively.
