Dear Maxibasketball friends,
We would like to remind you, that it is only one month left to make a registration for 10th FIMBA Maxibasketball European Championship in Maribor. For some months now, organizers have been intensively preparing for one of the most massive sporting events of the year in the city, which is one of the European Cities of Sport 2018. We hope to meet your expectations, conjuring up one of the best events ever.
Applications for participation in the championship will be collected until the 13th of April, so only then will it be definitively clear how many teams will be in the individual category and what the system of the competition will be. FIMBA will then, on the 30th of May, make a public group draw on its web site and in later days prepare a detailed schedule of events and schedule for the competition. You can find information about the teams that have been registered so far on http://maxibasketballmaribor2018.com/registered-teams/. Applications can still be filled in on http://maxibasketballmaribor2018.com/registration-2/.
All registered teams are reminded that the registration fee for the competition via the FIMBA online form must be settled no later than the 13th of April. Payment of the registration fee for the reservation with official booking (EUR 1300) can be done on http://fimbaregistrationcenter.com/index.php/en/2-uncategorised/14-1300-maribor-registration-fee-early-pkg-discount-3, and the payment of the full fee (EUR 1450) on http://fimbaregistrationcenter.com/index.php/en/payment-fee.

At the same time, we will shortly prepare packages for day long, half a day and shorter excursions for the days when you will not play matches. We are inviting you to get to know the most of Slovenia and as much of its rich tourist, recreational, cultural, and culinary offerings as possible. We will take you through Maribor and its surroundings, as well as to the coast of the Adriatic Sea, below the Alps, to the famous Lake Bled, and to the underworld of the world-famous Postojna Cave. For those who, even in their free time when you don’t have matches, cannot be without basketball, we will arrange an organized trip to see the qualification match for the FIBA World Championship between Slovenia and Spain, which will take place in Ljubljana on June 28th. We kindly ask you to inform us at our email address firstname.lastname@example.org the number of seats for the match, so that we can reserve tickets for you as soon as possible. The price of the ticket and bus service will be between 30 and 35 euros per person, payment will be required in advance.
For all teams that will arrive in Maribor by air travel, we will arrange organized bus transport from the airports in Ljubljana, Zagreb, and Graz after prior arrangement and payment. The price for a return bus ticket will be 30 euros from Graz and 40 euros from Ljubljana and Zagreb.
