Shay Shtriks: A successful 7th season

Shay Shtriks: A successful 7th season

A few days ago came to an end the seventh season in EUROHOLD Balkan League. It was another long and interesting season which finished with good and positive atmosphere at the final in Samokov. Here are the words which the Sports Director of the competition - Mr. Shay Shtriks, wanted to share after the end to the season:

Congratulations – there is a new BIBL Champion – KB Sigal Prishtina!   Last Wednesday 29.04.2015 we finished the 7th EUROHOLD Balkan League season. The title went to the best team this season - KB Sigal Prishtina. All the season they played strong and good basketball with almost perfect organization. The cooperation with the league, the respect and the hospitality to the other teams, to the referees and to BIBL staff was very good. It is a big achievement to all the people which were involved in the club and to the Kosovo basketball.
All other clubs also showed strong and high level basketball and we had very interesting games throughout all the season. Most of the teams provided very good conditions and respected their opponents, referees and the management of the Balkan League. 
A lot of local players had the opportunity to show that we have in our region great basketball players and they just need to get the possibility to show this to the world. 
During season number 7 we, the basketball world, saw that we have a quality and strong league. All the games were broadcast live either on TV (over 70%) or in the i-net on Sportmedia TV and in the last stages of the competition thousands of basketball fans from everywhere were given the possibility to watch the games.
However, our job from Monday is to prepare the 8th season to be better and even more interesting, to find the way to provide at least the same high level basketball and better organization to all the clubs that will play in BIBL season 2015-16.
On 28.05.2015 the annual Board meeting of the Balkan League will take place with all the member-federations. It will take place in Prishtina as the Basketball Federation of Kosovo will be now official member of the BIBL Board after being affiliated as a full member of FIBA in March.
We will present new ideas and some more conditions that will help us upgrade the level of organization and basketball for the next season.
The system will stay the same. The basic calendar (with full cooperation with the local federations) will stay the same. We do hope to have 12 teams in the league (the calendar will not change) and we wish to add at least one more country and to have 7 countries and 7 federations members of the Balkan League.
We have some ideas how to support the level of the basketball by modifying the regulations regarding local players, European and non-European players.
One more idea which will be discussed in the Board meeting is the new FIBA project 3X3 and there is a chance to have this project from next season in the Balkan League as well.
This is the place to wish all the clubs good luck in their local leagues. I do hope the experience from the BIBL strong season will support all of them to have the best possible result.
See all of you next season!
