FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis said: “We are excited to work alongside our Global Partner TCL and launch this important project with them. We have placed a strong emphasis on Women in Basketball, one of our current strategic priorities for global basketball, with one of the goals to increase female players’ participation. Initiatives like this are vital in helping to achieve this.”
Yuki Wei, Vice President of TCL noted: “We share the same values with FIBA and aim to empower more girls and women to reach their full potential. TCL continues to be devoted to the mission of inspiring young girls around the world with this new campaign and encourages them to break through their limitations and believe in themselves with the support of FIBA and its National Federations. We strongly believe that those we inspire today will inspire us tomorrow.”
TCL started its partnership with FIBA in 2018.
