Austrian Basketball Bundesliga Denies BC Vienna License At The First Instance
Austrian basketball champion BC Vienna "did not fulfill the requirements for the Bundesliga license," according to KURIER. The license committee of the Austrian Basketball Bundesliga "has, at first instance, denied the license to the defending champion BC Vienna." The reason for the committee's decision is that the club does not fulfill the requirements of having youth teams participate in the state federation and in the Austrian youth championships. The club "can appeal the decision within 24 hours after it received the written decision" (KURIER, 6/6).
