In February 2014, the Naismith Trophy was on display at the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans and created a huge buzz as a number of international stars talked with great excitement about playing at this summer’s FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain (30 August-14 August) for the right to lift the ultimate prize in the international game.
On Thursday 10 April, with its flagship event less than 150 days away, FIBA resumes the Trophy Tour as the Naismith Trophy embarks on a journey to travel around the world and make stops in the countries of a number of participating national teams at Spain 2014. At each stop, FIBA, the host national federation and the event partners will use the presence of the Naismith Trophy to promote the World Cup and the participation of the host national side in it with a rich programme of activities aimed at celebrating basketball. Expect to see past and present national team players share their memories and expectations for this summer’s World Cup and get ready to pose with the trophy to get your picture taken!
