FINANCE, MARKETING AND MEDIA

Basketball is everywhere. Played all over the world on the biggest stages.

Invented just over 120 years ago, basketball is a growing sport with, at its core, an estimated 450 million players and fans worldwide who compete, watch or follow a game they love and feel deeply passionate about.

Gender neutral, continuously breaking down racial and religious barriers, basketball unites rather than divides.

Young and fast, modern and exciting, basketball is above all else inspiring.

A TV favourite, it is also the most popular team sport of the Olympics, the world’s favourite sporting event.

FIBA Media & Marketing Services, the wholly-owned subsidiary of FIBA, is responsible for the development, management and delivery of all of FIBA’s media and marketing activities, as well as related partnerships, including those for FIBA’s flagship competitions, the FIBA Basketball World Cups for Men and Women.

With commercial partnerships playing a significant role for FIBA, the development of the game and the staging of its events, FIBA Media & Marketing Services generates revenue through the sale of broadcast rights, its global sponsorship programme and official licensing programmes.

The FIBA Graphics Manual is provided to the host broadcaster of each event.

FIBA TV Academy

Basketball is a truly global game and, as with any global sport, the styles and ways of broadcasting the games vary significantly around the world.

The FIBA TV Academy is an online educational tool that has been developed by FIBA in order to guide and educate the users in the best practice production of a basketball game.

The FIBA TV Academy is the destination for basketball directors to visit and understand the basic fundamental principles and skills required for the optimum coverage of the sport of basketball. The site content has been developed through the analysis of the production of basketball games throughout the world and the input of basketball directors that have been responsible for FIBA World and Continental Championships, Olympic Games as well as NBA and Euroleague basketball games.

FIBA’s aim is that, as the overall production level of the game of basketball improves throughout the world, the awareness and interest and visual image of the sport grows. This will lead to more people of all ages, genders and cultures playing basketball.

This tool will become increasingly important in relation to the new FIBA calendar in 2017 where more and more games will need to be produced around the world.
