FIBA backs ADEMEBA
martes, 21 de junio 2011


In the wake of the FIBA Americas U16 Men's Championship, Secretary General, Mr. Alberto García remarked that ADEMEBA (Asociación Deportiva Mexicana de Baloncesto) is the one federation endorsed to organize international tournaments in Mexico.

FIBA Americas once again backed ADEMEBA as the sole organization approved to conduct international tournaments in Mexico. FIBA Americas' Secretary General, Alberto García sustained that the FMB (Mexican Basketball Federation) has never approached the international organism to request any formal recognition.

"The only thing that we've received from the FMB is a letter presented by the state government of Guanajuato requesting for the FMB to be the only recognized entity responsible of basketball in Mexico.", said Garcia. "They wanted FIBA to recognize FMB in order to let us have León de Guanajuato continue as host of the U16 Men's championship and we said no."

"We can not recognize any federation other than the ADEMEBA in Mexico. We have been working with them for the last eight years with good results on international competitions.", continued Garcia, who also said the climate has changed with the FMB in the last two years and has turned confrontational. "In the last two years we've been having problems. They (FMB) know that we cannot recognize two organizations , they know what they are doing and they have been blocking FIBA tournaments in Mexico. They have also been threatening young players with being disqualified from the national olympics if they play ADEMEBA tournaments, and that is just not fair."

Garcia ended on a hopeful note, focusing on the U16 Men's Championship and the great work that Cancun Quintana Roo has been doing to put it together. "Cancun will be the place to be if you want to watch the next generation of basketball superstars from the American continent.", concluded the Secretary General.
