The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) have condemned EuroLeague's refusal to change two game-days as a "commercially-driven attack to the national teams" as European basketball continues to be torn apart by rival organisations.
The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has described a so-called "calendar proposal" by Euroleague Commercial Assets (ECA) to move the 2019 Basketball World Cup from September to July as "simply not serious and therefore unacceptable".
The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has accused Euroleague Commercial Assets (ECA) of being "unfair and unreasonable" towards players for not including windows for international matches in the 2017 to 2018 Euroleague calendar.
Euroleague Basketball has pressed ahead with launching a new brand identity for the 2016 to 2017 season amid the ongoing row between their parent company and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA).
The row concerning European basketball has intensified after the sport’s worldwide governing body officially launched its Champions League tournament despite a rival Euroleague being unveiled last year.
