Partners’ Meeting In Geneva

Partners’ Meeting In Geneva

Partners’ Meeting In Geneva

The FIBA Research & Study Centre was founded to help equip and increase the number of sports facilities throughout the world, encourage the construction of basic facilities and the refurbishment of older ones, co-ordinate research initiatives and offer consulting services for materials, equipment design and construction.

Its annual Partners’ and Decisional Board Meeting took place in Geneva on the 10th and 11th of May 2004. More than 30 Partners from all over the world attended the reunion.

It was the first time that the newly elected Decisional Board, the governing body of the FIBA Research and Study Centre, had the opportunity to discuss the results of last year and to give suggestions for the future.

All Partners agreed that FSB Koln 2003 was a great success; the exhibition generated great interest and positive business opportunities for FIBA’s Partners. The visit of the Secretaries General and Mr. Gilbert Felli from the IOC was very much appreciated. In order to attract even more publicity, it is foreseen that FIBA will invite international basketball players to Cologne in 2005.

One of the greatest achievements of the FIBA Research and Study Centre was that the Central Board accepted the amendment in the Internal Regulations regarding the supply of the technical equipment for official FIBA Competitions.

“Before each official competition of FIBA, the court, as well as all the technical equipment, must be examined and approved by the appropriate body of FIBA.

Only technical equipment whose make and type have been approved by FIBA (Study Centre) may be used on the occasion of main official competitions of FIBA. This means that all Local Organizing Committees are obliged to equip the arena where the competitions take place with FIBA certified backstop units, flooring systems and electronic scoreboards. The other products that belong to another categories are highly recommended also, but not obligatory.”

At the meeting, the Partners had the opportunity to work together in groups and propose some modifications for the basketball equipment section of the Official Basketball Rules.

These changes were then presented to the Central Board in Paris in June.

The FIBA Research and Study Centre has developed a special program for the future which includes the following activities:

1. CREATE NEW PRODUCT GROUPS

Until now there were seven different product categories for the approved equipment (Backstop Units, Wooden and Synthetic Floorings, Electronic Scoreboards, Electric and Electronic Systems, Miscellaneous Products and Basketballs).

Since under the miscellaneous category there were too many products, FIBA proposed to reorganize the product groups and to add the following new categories:

  • Construction Materials / Security Systems / Arena Furniture
  • Permanent and Mobile Seating Systems
  • Technical Equipment (Lighting Systems / Sound Systems / Heating and Air Conditioning Systems)
  • Rotating Boards and Video Advertising Systems
  • Coaching and Training Materials

2. HELP TO PROVIDE EQUIPMENT FOR THE NATIONAL FEDERATIONS

More and more often FIBA receives requests from the national federations or clubs that would like to purchase basketball equipment. In order to centralize the procedure, FIBA will send to every national basketball federation and national Olympic committee a letter asking whether they are planning to construct or refurbish any basketball halls in their country.

There will be a pilot project carried out, focusing on Italy, Hungary and Switzerland.

The objective is to make people understand that whenever they need equipment supply, they can contact the Study Centre.

3. CONTROL THE EQUIPMENT AT THE VENUES OF THE OFFICIAL FIBA COMPETITIONS

With the help of the five FIBA zones, FIBA will increase control of the equipment that is used during the high-level FIBA competitions.

4. PREPARE OUTDOOR APPROVAL PROGRAMME

FIBA is going to print the Guide for Outdoor Court publication in the very near future. There will be a new approval program created for companies that are interested in promoting their outdoor equipment.

The newly approved companies will be able to participate at FIBA’s Outdoor Basketball Programme, which will include international outdoor tournaments all over the world. The first event will take place in Argentina in the middle of October 2004.

5. INCREASE CONTROL OVER THE MISUSAGE OF THE FIBA STUDY CENTRE LOGO

FIBA will make an extra effort to avoid that unauthorized companies use the FIBA Study Centre logo.

6. MAKE NEW PUBLICATIONS AND UPDATE THE EXISTING ONES

Until now, FIBA published the Guide for Basketball Facilities, the Safety Standards and the brochure presenting the Study Centre Partners. The Safety Standards were recently reprinted in a user friendly A4 format, and the Guide for Outdoor Courts will be available later this year. In 2005 the Guides for High-Level and Smaller Basketball Facilities will be updated.

Finally, it was decided that the Decisional Board will meet again in October 2004, while the next Partners’ Meeting will take place in April / May 2005.
