Basketball fans in Lebanon will now be able to watch their national teams in action on free-to-air television with FIBA and the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation International (LBCI) reaching an agreement giving LBCI exclusive free-to-air television broadcasting rights in Lebanon for the FIBA’s major world and continental competitions until 2025.

This partnership strengthens LBCI’s long-lasting objective of supporting Lebanese basketball teams in international competitions and placing Lebanon on the global sports map.

The agreement grants LBCI viewers access to FIBA competitions during the years 2023 through to 2025, with special coverage from the LBCI sports team and basketball experts.

It will cover the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, the FIBA Continental Cups for both men and women, the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cups for both men and women, the FIBA Continental Cup Qualifiers and the FIBA U17 Basketball World Cups for both men and women.

Commenting on the agreement, Pierre El Daher, Chairman and CEO of LBCI said: “It gives me great pleasure to see that the relationship between our two entities that goes as far back as 1996 is continuing for the years to come.

“Over the years, the relationship between FIBA and LBCI has resulted in playing a crucial role in exposing the Lebanese National team both locally and internationally. Our joint efforts have resulted in upgrading the quality of broadcast and the entire experience to international standards. We look forward to the years to come and to future success in our cooperation.”

Frank Leenders, FIBA Media and Marketing Services Director General said: “This is excellent news for sports fans in Lebanon. This continuing partnership with LBCI will further strengthen our synergies and greatly benefit the visibility of our international events for basketball fans across the country over the coming years.”

Lebanon has qualified for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, which tips off on August 25. The national team will play its last game of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Asian Qualifiers on Monday, February 27, against New Zealand. Fiba.Basketball
