The International Basketball Federation (Fiba) has extended its partnership with sports equipment provider Schelde.
Schelde Sports will continue to be the official provider of backstop units for Fiba’s 3×3 events until 2020. The partnership began in March 2013 and had been due to expire next year.
“3×3 is on the rise and working with leading companies such as Schelde Sports paves the way for our Olympic aspirations,” Alex Sanchez, Fiba 3×3 director, said.
Schelde Sports’ general manager, Bart Prinssen, added: “Over the last years we have been inspired by the large ambitions of Fiba and the cosmopolitan 3×3 community around the world.
“It is our goal to continuously launch new products and features for 3×3 basketball.”
