The Libox Lipik Association, responsible for street basket tournaments organized in Lipik for 19 consecutive years including 2 Challengers had received another recognition.
FIBA has invited Libox representatives to participate an Event Supervisor workshop that was held in Barcelona. Libox was represented by Ivan Pušćenik and Darian Husko who have been recognized as FIBA 3×3 Event Supervisors to represent FIBA in some of their international events. Libox will be supervising at least one event in 2018, and several in the following, pre-Olympic year.
„Partnership with FIBA in further development and the organization of 3×3 events at the highest level represents a great recognition to our organization. We have been invited to run some of FIBA’s events in Europe and Asia, primarily major competitions such as European and World Championship Qualifiers, Continental Qualifiers, Women’s 3×3, U18, U23.
We are expecting a large expansion of 3×3 basketball in Croatia and the world and we now can actively participate in the 3×3 basketball development.
High-quality organization of the Lipik 3×3 Challenger contributed to this recognition. I want to thank all the members of the organization and our volunteers for the engagement, as well as to Town of Lipik, Cedevita, Heineken and all the other sponsors and donors for their help,“ said Ivan Pušćenik, President of the Libox Association, after the Barcelona meeting.
Tournament organizers from Romania and France had also participated at the aforementioned meeting where they were introduced with the development strategy of 3×3 for the next 2 years and the qualification procedures for the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
