“We can organize everything with a budget of 200 million”

Senegal has its destiny in hand to win a 3rd consecutive qualification after 2014 and 2019. To do this, the State should pay 200 million francs for the organization of the 5th window scheduled for February 2023. The President of the Senegalese Federation basketball, Me Babacar Ndiaye, provided details on this subject.

What you need to know is that there is no right to organize concerning the windows of the playoffs. Organization fees are paid in certain competitions such as Afrobasket (boys and girls) and Olympic qualifying tournaments. It is more expensive for TQOs. There is nothing to pay for playoff windows. It is simply sporting and hotel conditions that must be met.

Referees, FIBA ​​officials and part of the hotel costs of the participating teams must be covered. We can organize everything with a budget of 150 to 200 million. We are in the arrangements because the minister gave me his agreement in principle. I say it’s not heavy because 200 millions it’s nothing for a State also knowing that we have our destiny in hand to qualify for the World Cup. This would be the third consecutive time after 2014 and 2019.

We are seeing if we will play at Marius Ndiaye or Dakar Arena. We will make a final choice if FIBA ​​awards us the competition. I saw the halls of Alexandria and Monastir during the last windows, but they are no better than Marius Ndiaye”, said President Babacar Ndiaye.
