Two years after the last time, the Italian national basketball team chose Faenza for its first official release in Italy. In fact, on Sunday, November 14, the Azzurre, led by coach Lino Lardo, will challenge the Luxembourg team at the PalaCattani in Faenza in the second qualifying match for the 2023 European Championship.
Sunday, November 14th will be the second match for qualification to EuroBasket Woman 2023, after the debut event scheduled for Thursday, November 11th in Piestany, at the home of Slovakia.
“Creating and hosting big sporting events, in this case on the basketball court – says Mayor Massimo Isola – is a way to strengthen the roots of young people in industries and to be next to the professional teams of the city. That is why we have been working for the last few weeks to bring Marco Belinelli to Faenza at PalaBubani and the national women’s basketball team to PalaCattani. These wonderful occasions not only make Faenza famous nationally and internationally, but they are moments that will be remembered by those close to the world of basketball and the fans. This is why in the coming years we will try to host others, not just those related to the world of basketball. “Hosting a national team is always a move of great responsibility and I am convinced that we will be able to honor this opening of the Federation’s credit to us.”
“For us – said the sports consultant, Martina Laggi – it is an honor we have chosen from the Federation to host the qualifying match for the 2023 European Championship of the national women’s basketball team. We gave our availability because basketball fits well with the movement of women’s basketball. Faenza, on November 14 will be able to convey his warmth and support. “I’m also sure it will be a great day of fun and celebration for the Faenza basketball world: the youth section of our city and the first teams to attend PalaCattani to support the Azzurre.”
