Wheelchair Basketball South Africa has been awarded the rights to host the 2020 Afro Paralympic Qualifiers in Johannesburg.
The 2020 Afro Paralympic Qualifiers will now act as IWBF Africa’s Zone qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games to replace the Africa Para Games which were cancelled last month.
The decision was made by the IWBF Executive Council at their meeting in Pattaya, Thailand on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th December, following three bids from interested parties to host the qualification tournament.
The tournament is to be held in Johannesburg between the 1st – 7th March 2020.
(The dates were altered from original dates published following a request from IWBF World to accommodate Moroccan and Algerian athletes who are participating in European Club Competitions over this period.)
