Egypt to host U-19 FIBA World Championship
FIBA has announced the selection of Egypt to host of the 2017 U-19 Basketball World Championship.
According to the announcement, which was made on Saturday, Egypt managed to pip Italy, Latvia and Israel to the tournament’s hosting rights.
It is worth noting that the three countries tried to oust Egypt from the running earlier on, especially citing the absence of fans from stadiums in the recent years as the reason for a possible exclusion.
Matches will take place at the Cairo International Stadium covered complex, in Nasr City.
The tournament will be the first of its kind to take place in an African city.
