The Baltic Cup is a new project created by NGO Esto Maxibasket (Estonia), BK “Vecmeistari” (Latvia) and Lithuania Veterans Basketball League (Lithuania) and European Seniors Basketball Association (ESBA). It is a competition of the best seniors’ basketball teams from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in different age and gender categories.
The three countries will rotate in hosting the championship, with the organizing country determining the age groups, time, location and system of play. Additional participating countries are also decided by the organizer of the cup.
The Baltic Cup is a tournament between the winning teams of Estonia’s, Latvia’s and Lithuania’s basketball championships, where the winners of Baltic cup in different age groups and in men’s and women’s teams will emerge. The rights to participate in Baltic Cup belong to Champions of the Championships of the corresponding countries in the regular season. If a champion waives its rights to participate, the vice-champion takes over the rights. Two players from another teams could be added in the participant team’s roster.
The first Baltic Cup 2015 will be held in Estonia at the Pärnu Sports Hall (Riia HWY 129, Pärnu) on 11-12 September 2015. Organizer Esto Maxibasket.
