14th World Maxibasketball Championship

World Champsionship in Montecatini Terme - Italy

In a few months we will have the opportunity to feel once more the atmosphere of a World Championship.
This time will be in the center of another founder country, Italy.

Thousand of people from the entire world are waiting to share the unique time of this event each two years. It will be this time encircled by history, hills, spas and nice people showing the joy of the little city with big smiles and open hearts.

When we started the work together with the Organizing Committee some years ago we felt the chance to play basketball in a city and surroundings with sport’s background but with the prospect to convert it in a familiar town, in a maxibasketball town, for ten days. We experienced all of that walking in the peaceful streets, taking our time in the many coffee shops and restaurants, drinking a delicious Spritz and watched the valley and the skyline in Montecatini Alto.

The Mayor Giuseppe Bellandi was decided to bring the championship to the core of Pistoia showing his will every time we met. The Panathlon International and the basketball clubs displayed the emotion for helping the event. Montecatini shows promising and close in the path we started twenty-five years ago.

The beauty of Tuscany was enough reason to visit this special region of Italy, but if we add the organization of the World Championship we will understand the spirit of maxibasketball enjoying much more than the landscaping, we will experience the true sport feeling.
