History of European Basketball Championships

The International Basketball Federation, founded in 1932, decided to “rehearse” before basketball was introduced in the Olympics. So, in 1935 they decided to hold the European Basketball Championship in Geneva. 10 teams took part in the first tournament. Victory in the tournament was won by the Latvian national team.

The USSR team became the European champion 14 times, followed by Yugoslavia in second place with 8 times. Currently, the title holder is Slovenia.
