Here we go

Just a few days to go till my very own World Championship starts. Maybe silly to refer it as my own but the World Cup from the FIFA is just a small tournament compared to what we do here in Amsterdam.

Teams from all over the world will be at the World Championships Wheelchair Basketball, we play 70 matches (FIFA only 64) in 10 days (FIFA in 5 weeks). After two years of hard organising we are looking forward to the start.

The first teams already have landed here (Canada and USA) and we are expecting over 10.000 spectators during the 10 days tournament.

So please feel free to drop in here at Amsterdam to watch the 4th most important basketball event in the world after the olympics, world championship non-handicapped and the NBA play-offs.

If one wants to volunteer to join me on the next weeks be careful because just after this main event I am off to Portugal for a training camp with a national team till July 27th and then from July 29th to Rumenia for the European Championships in youth Basketball.

Enjoy whatever you are doing.
