German Basketball Federation Interested In Hosting EuroBasket 2015
The German Basketball Federation (DBB) "wants to host EuroBasket 2015 after Ukraine has given up the hosting rights for next year's European championship," according to SPORT1. DBB General Secretary Wolfgang Brenscheidt said, "We've been approached, and will throw our hat in the ring." However, Brenscheidt said that the DBB "does not want to host the whole tournament but only part of it." FIBA Europe said that "it has not yet received a request from Ukraine to move the tournament." Therefore, a switch of the host country is currently "pure speculation." Brenscheidt also said that between "10 to 12 countries" have announced their interest in hosting the event (SPORT1, 3/19).
