The best predictions have been right. The national team of the United States, current world champion and gold medallist at the 2012 Olympic Games will play the preliminary stage of the FIBA 2014 Basketball World Cup in the installations of the Bizkaia Arena (BEC!). The biggest stars of the NBA will share the bill with the national teams from Finland, New Zealand, the Ukraine, the Dominican Republic and Turkey.
Bilbao will become a global reference for the best basketball on 30 August and 4 September. The Bizkaia Arena, one of the pavilions of the Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC), will host a total of 15 games in the preliminary stage of the FIBA 2014 Basketball World Cup.
These facilities are less than a quarter of an hour away via the Bilbao Metro.
