Just 100 days to go before the "Giant Get-Together"
The 2010 FIBA World Basketball Championship in Turkey

With 100 days to go before the start of the 2010 FIBA World Championship  in Turkey, the organisers say all tickets that were available on public sale for the event have already sold out.

Only a small contingent will be made available shortly before the event begins on 28th August.

Around 350,000 people are expected to attend the Championship, which culminates in the final on 12th September.

The event will be played in four cities - Ankara, Istanbul, Izmir and Kayseri - and feature 24 teams, with 288 players playing 80 games. Two new venues have been built especially for the Championship.

Patrick Baumann, the Secretary-General of basketball's governing body FIBA and a member of the International Olympic Committee, said:

"The 2010 World Championship will be the world's biggest ever basketball competition, and the biggest event ever to  be held in Turkey. We are delighted that all available tickets have already sold out, a sign that the world's second biggest sport is as popular as ever.

"Basketball has a clean, positive and exciting image and is followed by over 450million people around the world. Its future is as bright as ever and the World Championship will be a clear symbol of the sport's growing success."

The first round of the Championship, which returns to Europe for the first time in 12 years, will be played from 28th August to 12th September and feature superstars including Kobe Bryant.

The team winning the FIBA World Championship 2010 will qualify automatically for the London 2012 Olympics.

The following teams have qualified for Turkey:

Group A (Kayseri): Angola, Argentina, Australia, Germany, Jordan, Serbia

Group B (Istanbul): Brazil, Croatia, Iran, Slovenia, Tunisia, USA

Group C (Ankara): China, Greece, Ivory Coast, Puerto Rico, Russia, Turkey

Turkey ‘plays’ host to FIBA World Championship, summer 2010

Cementing its reputation in the world of sports, Turkey will host FIBA’s World Championship basketball tournament, between August 28 and September 12, 2010. The world’s largest and most prestigious basketball tournament brings together 24 teams from five continents in Turkey, one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in the world.

Turkey is proud and excited to have been chosen to host this quadrennial event, which is returning to Europe for the first time in 12 years. In order to determine the world’s best basketball nation, 80 basketball games will be played at stadiums throughout key tourist cities in Turkey including Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara, and Kayseri.

With the goal of achieving an unprecedented level of excellence in the organization of the FIBA World Championship and working towards the ultimate dream of hosting the Olympic Games, Turkey’s Local Organizing Committee has been making preparations throughout the country. Renovations have been made on Ankara’s Ankara Cok Maksatli Stadium; Istanbul’s Abdi Ipekci Arena; Izmir’s Halkapinar Arena; and Kayseri’s Kayseri Arena; and an entirely new stadium, the Sinan Erdem Dom, has been built in Turkey’s capital city, Istanbul.


Turkey is a modern nation with a captivating blend of antiquity and contemporary and of East and West. The cradle of civilization and center of world history today stands as one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in the world.




Turkey was the site of the first human settlement; the seat of the Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman Empires; the birthplace of Homer and the last home of the Virgin Mary, just to name a few. Today Turkey, with its spectacular coastline, majestic mountains, cosmopolitan cities and quaint villages is one of the world’s most fascinating destinations.

UAE - Olympic Federations to review TV revenue share

The 28 Summer Olympic sports federations, feeling the squeeze from the global economic downturn, decided on Tuesday to review the way broadcast revenue from the Games are distributed.

Federations taking part in London 2012 will share around $375 million from the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) TV deals.

Athletics will get the biggest share with $35 million. Soccer, swimming, basketball, cycling, gymnastics, tennis and volleyball, ranked in group two, can expect about $18 million each.

Sports chiefs voted on Tuesday to alter the system after the London Olympics to make it more representative but some federations had argued that a revision was needed immediately.

The IOC distributes the broadcast revenue from Olympic TV deals to the 28 sports, placed in four groups. Federations in the two lower groups are allocated $13 million and $11 million respectively.

"The share of TV revenues ... needs to be reviewed now, not in two years," international swimming federation (FINA) chief Julio Maglione told a meeting of the 28 sports.

MARKET APPEAL

"The current distribution does not reflect ... the changes in market appeal and changes in sport."

Swimming is among the most watched sports at the Games.

Boxing chief Ching Kuo Wu had also asked for an immediate revision, as did handball and table tennis bosses.

The IOC has secured a record total of $3.8 billion from broadcast rights for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver that took place in February and for London 2012.

The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and world soccer's governing body (FIFA) agreed to give $20 million from the combined TV funds they will receive for the London Games to the other federations.




"I said last year that if our finances are comfortable we would give that (windfall) to the other federations," FIFA chief Sepp Blatter told Reuters. "That is exactly what we will do now."

Federations will receive more money for London 2012 compared to Beijing 2008 as there are only 26 sports on the program instead of 28.

Softball and baseball were voted off for London, with golf and rugby replacing them at the 2016 Olympics.
