Uganda will host this year’s Zone V men and women’s basketball club championship after getting hosting rights from the regional federation.

In a press statement released on Monday, http://crosscon.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-user.php 19th March, http://dchnf.dk/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-checkout.php the Zone V Federation awarded Uganda hosting rights for the annual club championship.

The resolution was passed during the Zone V 4th formal meeting held on 16th March 2017 at the Amor Hotel in Cairo, Egypt.

The meeting was presided over by Zone V president Hesham El-Hariri and attended by Adel Tooma, the Assistant General secretary of FIBA Africa, Hilensi Ali(Vice President, Kenya Basketball Federation) and Mugwisa Desire, the president of the Federation of Rwanda Basketball Association (FERWABA) among others.

This is the third time that Uganda will host the Zone V club tournament previously hosting it in 2009(when it changed name from East and Central club championship to Zone V) and in 2013.

Before change of name, Uganda had hosted the championship in 2002 and Falcons won it.

In 2009, Uganda’s representatives Warriors lost in the finals while in 2013 Power were eliminated at the semifinals.

City Oilers are the defending champions in the men’s category while Kenya’s KPA won last year’s women’s championship.

Neighbours Kenya will host the 2017 U18 and Senior Afro Basket men and women for 3 X 3 in May/June.
