Ghana Neighbor, Ivory Coast, is set to set in motion FIBA’s development program for federations per reports reaching Basketballghana.com
The West African nation is the latest federation to do so since the program was announced; Rwanda, Kenya, Senegal and Uganda have started implementing the program for a while.
11 African countries have been selected for the program but Ghana is not included in the selected countries to benefit from the new initiative.
The program has been divided into two sections with the first section involving the Ivorian Federation setting a timeline for development this year.
The second section will be implemented next year and will have matters on finance, technical and administration sorted.
World governing body FIBA will be heavily involved in the process and FIBA Africa president of National Federations’ council Jean Michel Ramaroson and FIBA National Federations and Sports Manager Florian Pasquet were in Abidjan to supervise a workshop.
Two more West African countries Nigeria and Mali have been selected with Mozambique, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon and South Africa.
