The IWBF has made the decision to postpone the IWBF Executive Council meeting as a precautionary measure against the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

The decision was made in close co-operation with our partner FIBA, who were hosting the bi-annual meeting, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th April at the House of Basketball in Mies, Geneva.

IWBF President, Ulf Mehrens, said:

“It is with much regret we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the Executive Council meeting, but we feel it is the responsible option given the situation around the globe at the present time. We are sensitive and concerned as to the health and safety of the board members attending as well as the difficulties many of those attending may face in terms of traveling due to the travel restrictions some countries currently have in place.”

The board meeting will be rearranged to a future date which is yet to be determined; however, the Executive Council will join a conference call to discuss the more time critical and important points on the agenda.
