Few would argue that basketball has become one of the world’s most global sports.

Players move around more, scouts and coaches recruit from an ever increasing geographic pool of players, and of course fans can now watch and follow leagues and games all over the world from the comfort of their living-room or office.

But until now following the world’s top leagues and monitoring the very best players in the world has meant navigating through hundreds of websites in a multitude of languages.

With the launch of FIBA.com’s new Game Center (fiba.com/gamecenter), this will no longer be the case.

Offering game previews, results and box scores, updated standings, accumulated statistics and player profiles from over 60 national and international leagues worldwide, the Game Center is a game changer.
