The road to EuroBasket Women 2023 – and then the 2024 Paris Olympics – starts in Manchester against Greece next month on Thursday 11th November @ 19:30 at The National Basketball Performance Centre.
And Great Britain Women’s head coach Chema Buceta wants a passionate crowd there to set his team on their way with a win.
“We need a big crowd in Manchester to support the team,” said the Spaniard. “We need everyone to feel part of the team – this GB team is the team for all.”
The GB Women face a Greek team ranked 15th in the world, six places ahead of Buceta’s side, in their opening EuroBasket Women qualifier and the GB play caller is determined to match or better their 2020 effort of finishing a record fourth in the finals.
To do so again would give them a shot at an even bigger prize – the qualification tournament for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Tickets for the clash with Greece at the National Basketball Performance Centre are on sale now and Buceta wants to see a packed house at Belle Vue, not only to cheer his team on, but to rally round the UK women’s game in general.
