The Basketball Africa League (BAL) will conclude the fourth season of the competition in a few days, on June 1. Between the media and the organizers, the prospects for the next edition are at the heart of discussions. Countries are already vying to host the final phase of the event.

Is Senegal part of the list of applicants to host the final phase of this event which has become essential in the African sports calendar? The president of the BAL responded. “If Senegal applies, it will be a file that will be studied very closely. But I want to say that there are other countries that want to organize the finals” he declared this Thursday at a press conference.

After a successful Sahara conference at Dakar Arena which was sold out more than once, the debate arises. Above all, with the presence of the President of the Republic Bassirou Diomaye Faye on the last day of this group phase. Amadou Gallo Fall tells us more about the contours of their exchange. “He reiterated all the support and pride he has in relation to the work that is being done and especially in relation to the event he experienced alongside his counterpart from Rwanda who undoubtedly shared his experience in the fallout that the organization of the BAL final here in Rwanda, how the country benefited from it. Having spoken to different people who are in this new leadership in Senegal, I am confident that there is interest in working more closely with the BAL.

In addition to the interest of the Head of State, there is also that of the Senegalese government. This should push the public and private sectors to follow the Rwandan model of investment in sport as a vector of economic development through events like the BAL. In order to sustain these infrastructures built by the State and develop youth.

“Beyond the talent that exists, there is an opportunity to do something special to boost the economy like Rwanda is doing. I remind you that we had a partnership with ASPT during season 2 to promote the Senegal destination and it is a conversation that we are revisiting with the new Minister of Tourism who came to watch a match in Dakar Arena. The Minister of Sport also came to visit us at the NBA Academy, also AS Douanes, and we spoke during the first day at Dakar Arena. And I know that she was speaking on behalf of the government and the authorities who are very enthusiastic about the opportunity for BAL to work on future editions.”
