Nothing is guaranteed, but FIBA is eager for the arrival of routine next year. The world governing body of basketball proclaimed the new dates for the Tokyo Olympic qualifying tournaments arranged for Victoria, Split among Croatia, Kaunas in Lithuania, and Belgrade in Serbia.

Clint Hamilton said“ There is now a gap we can look to with planning certainty chairman of the Victoria establishing steering committee. They [FIBA] are glad about how our establishment has been touched and there was no query of Victoria ongoing as a host city.”
The Victoria tournament had first been scheduled for June 23-28 in the Memorial Centre but that was scrubbed due to the Tokyo Olympic to 2021. The Games will still be labelled Tokyo 2020. They will be led within the retro of June 22 and July 4, 2021. The Victoria qualifying tournament, containing host team Canada, will be played at Save-on-Foods Commemorative Centre.
“I’m very happy that, in a very stimulating period, FIBA has been talented to conduct an internal discussion process so quick and settle an updated calendar within nearly two weeks from the IOC’s declaration of the new dates for the Tokyo Olympic Games,” FIBA secretary-general Andreas Zagklis said in a statement.
Tokyo Olympic organizers, momentarily, were derided for being overly optimistic that the Tokyo Olympic could go next as scheduled this year. Once stung, they went in the conflicting direction Friday in becoming so very cautious as to lower prospects even for 2021.
But the Games do not take place in isolation. If a pandemic is still producing delays into the summer of 2021, that would also mean no Super Bowl, and for a second consecutive year, no Stanley Cup, Memorial Cup, NBA championship, NCAA Final Four, Euro soccer, Masters, British Open, Indy or Wimbledon. Society is in a lot more worry than it thought if that occurs.
