FIBA Centennial Jubilee Basketball Tournament

Short History

     The FIBA Centennial Jubilee Basketball Tournament was the special edition tournament of the Acropolis International Basketball Tournament. It was organized jointly by FIBA Europe and the Hellenic Basketball Federation to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the sport of basketball. The tournament was held in 1991, in Piraeus, Greece. The Jubilee also included a FIBA Festival All-Star Game, which was divided up into a Balkans versus the rest of Europe format. The tournament is not counted officially with the other Acropolis International Tournaments, because it was not solely organized by the Hellenic Basketball Federation.
