We are pleased to announce that the city of Murcia will host the II Masters Murcia International Basketball Tournament 2018, MAMBA18, which will be held from 7 to 9 December in the Prince of Asturias, Santa Maria de Gracia, San Basilio and pavilions of the sports venue of the University of Murcia in Espinardo.
This ambitious project is organized by the Decyde Association and the TripleDouble collective, which have the collaboration of the Sports Directorate of the Autonomous Community, the City Council of the Capital and the Sports Department.
An international event with an estimated participation of 500 athletes between 35 and 60 years old from up to 11 different European countries is held. To all this we must add the public who will arrive thanks to the broadcast (by television and Internet) of the main parties by 7TV REGION DE MURCIA and coverage through social networks.
Doing a review of the first edition, MAMBA17, we see that it was a success. Some of the figures obtained are the following: 14 foreign teams (9 different countries), players of 16 different nationalities, 725 overnight stays, the television impact (with more than 6,000 people in direct to which you have to add later viewings, online and downloads ).
These and other data have made us selected by the International Federation of Maxibasketball (FIMBA) as a possible venue to host the World League FIMBA 2021, which brings together up to 80 teams from around the world. Fernando J. Zaplana
