The city of Malaga will be the main stage of the XI FIMBA European Basketball Championship that will be played from June 25 to July 4, 2021. The tournament, which should have been held on similar dates in 2020, will be held in various pavilions sports in the Malaga capital and some nearby municipalities. Before the Covid19 pandemic was declared, a total of 234 teams from more than 40 different countries had pre-registered for the Championship
The European Maxibasketball is the official championship organized by the International Maxibasketball Federation (FIMBA) and welcomes players over 35 years of age and players over 30. The tournament is divided into categories divided by age groups of five years. The men’s competition will have championships of the categories +35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75 and 80 and the women’s competition, +30, 35,40,45,50,55,60 and 65. Before pandemic declaration, all categories had more than one team enrolled.
Following the evolution of Covid19 around the world, we expect that about 200 teams will participate in the 18 existing categories. Many non-European teams will participate, if sanitary conditions allow it, as ambassadors for their countries. Thus, Asian, African, Oceanian, and also North and South American teams keep the registrations previously made alive. These teams, logically, do not enter the distribution of European medals. The great attraction that Spain, and particularly Malaga, have motivated this high participation of non-European teams.
The deadline for team’s registration will be May 10, 2,021. Payment deadline, May 15.
Remember that the deadline to do the registration is the 10th of May
The Championship will take place between Friday, the 25th of June, when all of the acreditation process will be done (in the case of not being able of doing it before) and Sunday, the 4th of July when the last finals will be played and the prize-giving ceremony will be celebrated.
Remember the following dates:
25th of June – Technical Meeting of team representatives (in which you will be given important information and instructions: please don’t forget to come)
26th of June – Delegations Parade and Opening Party
29th of June – Social Party (in which all participants have a free tasting and where is announced where will the next European Championship take place)
1st of July – Representatives dinner
4th of July – Finals and Awards ceremony
We have also some activities prepared for every evening, most of them by the beach.
We have also planned that the traditional meeting point will become a really “Fan Zone” to chat.
This Championship, unlike the previous, observes two features that make it specially interesting:
The Championship will be called “OPEN” because its participation has been opened to non European Teams which, at the Second Phase will compete for the medals in the classification “Rest of the World”.
For the first time in Europe, the championship will mantain also a competition in format FIMBAx3 which will be played concurrently to some days of the Championship.
The planned facilities will be the following:
Pabellón de Ciudad Jardín
Tiro de Pichón
Alhaurín de la Torre
Polideportivo El Limón
Complejo Deportivo Blas Infante
Pabellón Polideportivo Municipal San Miguel
* If the number of teams keeps on growing it’s really possible for us to add another facility
