MIES (Switzerland) - FIBA EuroBasket 2022 was a huge success! And the fact that the world's top players had the perfect stage to put on a show helped immensely. In the cities of Milan, Prague, Tbilisi, Cologne and Berlin, superstars like ­Giannis Antetokounmpo, Willy and Juancho Hernangomez, Luke Doncic and Nikola Jokic performed their best on ­Junckers hardwood sports floors and delivered an international hoops spectacle.

Five portable courts of 3700 m² wooden sports floors and 500 litres of paint and lacquer. Made of solid beech, pre-assembled as lightweight panels, and completed with pre-fixed battens, the floors provided excellent shock absorption, ball bounce and optimal player safety. The five court’s customized sponsor branding was beautifully carried out by Junckers.

"FIBA is pleased with the excellent cooperation it has had with Junckers at the EuroBasket 2022, which allowed for the optimal performance of players during the competition.  We look forward to building on this positive beginning with Junckers as it continues its preparations for the World Cup next year," said Andreas Biffiger, Head of FIBA Marketing. Junckers will ­continue to deliver high performing sports floors for FIBA.

Junckers CEO Lars Gjødsbøl said: "We are genuinely proud to have supplied the courts for the FIBA EuroBasket 2022 - nothing but the best for the best in the world. We are looking forward to supplying more top-quality sports floors for the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2023 and the Paris 2024 Olympic Games basketball tournaments." The multi-event partnership will encompass FIBA’s elite international competitions in 2023 and 2024.
