With the support of FIBA, the Malagasy 3×3 senior men’s basketball team will participate, for the first time, in the two “Challenger” professional competitions to be held in China and Taiwan. According to Jean Michel Ramaroson, president of the FMBB, “having seen the good performance of Madagascar during the World Cup, FIBA came to us announcing that it will help Madagascar to go to the Olympic Games in Paris. There are only eight places to go to the Olympics and this is an opportunity not to be missed”. The president of the FMBB adds that, thanks to the good organization of Madagascar during the Afrobasket of 2022, “FIBA has granted the country the organization of the Afrobasket of 3×3 for the U17s and seniors in 2024, 2025 and 2026. But I haven’t decided yet. The talks and the introduction of the subject at the level of the Malagasy authorities are in progress. Having the organization of these African championships is an opportunity not to be minimized”.
