Germany "will submit a bid to host the preliminary round of EuroBasket 2015," according to FOCUS ONLINE. German Basketball Federation (DBB) Sports Dir Peter Radegast "confirmed this decision on Wednesday in Leipzig." FIBA Europe "is currently looking for a replacement host of EuroBasket 2015 after original host Ukraine returned its hosting rights." The DBB "has to submit its application to FIBA Europe by July 31." Radegast: "The international federation has already declined to play the European Championship across several countries. The preliminary round and final round, however, could be played in different countries. 13 or 14 countries have announced their interest" (FOCUS ONLINE, 7/2).
