Nigeria Needed Back In BAL

Date:

Nigeria is not among the contestants for the 2022 edition of the Basketball Africa League, and BAL president Amadou Gallo Fall knows how important it is to the business of basketball on the continental level. 

Rivers Hoopers played in the 2021 edition of the BAL. They qualified for this year’s showcase before being disqualified by FIBA due to a breach of rules and regulations. NBA Africa’s vice-president said:

“The NBA understands what Nigeria represents, and it’s making sure that we serve as a unifying body for all stakeholders in the basketball ecosystem.

“The BAL is a great league, and it represents a massive opportunity for Africans. Many African players who have played internationally say that they want to play at home.”

“Most stakeholders in the Nigerian basketball ecosystem understand the importance of the league. Everybody who has a vested interest in basketball success in Nigeria knows the importance of this [and that the NBBF presidency impasse] has to be resolved.”

“I know that everyone is taking it seriously and trying to figure out the best way forward.”
