Airbnb expands sports portfolio with Fiba deal

Community-driven hospitality company Airbnb has expanded its portfolio of commercial sports deals by entering into a partnership with the International Basketball Federation (Fiba).

Although the length of the deal was not disclosed, it was revealed that the new partnership will begin this month.

Under the agreement, Airbnb will serve as the official accommodation provider for Fiba, while basketball’s global governing body will promote Airbnb’s services to fans and players alike.

In addition, Fiba will host an Airbnb-themed sweepstake for the 2015 edition of its EuroBasket national team basketball tournament.

The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two for the final days of this year’s competition in Lille, France. The prize includes two VIP tickets to the EuroBasket final game, a special meet-and-greet opportunity with a basketball legend, as well as accommodation provided by Airbnb.
