Emergency Plan to Get Royal Moroccan Basketball Federation Back on Track

Rabat – The provisional committee in charge of the management of the Royal Moroccan Basketball Federation (FRMBB), created in April 2019 in coordination with the supervisory ministry, has initiated an emergency plan focusing on several priority projects to put basketball back on track after a two-year hiatus.

In a statement, the provisional committee stressed that these projects are aimed at creating favorable conditions for the holding of an elective general Assembly, restructuring all components of the federation and consolidating cooperation with the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) in order to avoid sanctions.

 These projects, which are also meant to recast the texts (statutes and general regulations) and improve the financial situation of the federation, have been temporarily suspended following the current situation marked by the pandemic of the new coronavirus, said the same source, adding that all extraordinary statutory and ordinary elective general Assemblies will be postponed at the request of the leaders of the regional leagues, until the official lifting of this state of health emergency by the competent authorities.

 As for the national team, the provisional committee has opted for a new vision which consists in favoring the integration of young people, in addition to the establishment of a new culture and a state of mind based on discipline, rigor and respect.

 And in order to avoid heavy sanctions on the part of FIBA, the committee informed this body of all its actions, in particular through more than eight letters relating to the actions initiated by the committee.

 Also, the chairman of the committee held a working session with the secretary general of FIBA Africa on February 21, 2020 in Abidjan, during which he presented the highlights of the emergency plan and ways to bring Moroccan basketball out of the crisis situation.
