Representatives from a number of FIBA Asia Gulf Coast Countries travelled to Doha last month to take part in a FIBA Organizer Workshop hosted by the Qatar Basketball Federation.
FIBA Head of Technology Wolfram Klug and SportingPulse International experts Sam Fewster and Ben Turner presented the workshop to representatives from five Gulf Coast Countries.
FIBA Asia and Qatar Basketball Federation President Sheikh Saud Bin Ali Al-Thani, who is an strong advocate for the FIBA Digital tools being used throughout FIBA Asia, said “We are proud to host the first FIBA Digital Workshop for the Gulf here in Qatar, the use of technology is very important to us as we continue to grow the game not only in the Gulf but through Asia.”
“It was pleasing to host officials from five gulf countries who can now help others in their Federations to learn and introduce the FIBA Digital tools.”
“As basketball continues to grow through FIBA Asia, it is important that we develop a database of participants that we can use to generate sponsorship and government support and communicate with members. FIBA Digital is the perfect solution for this aim,” concluded Al-Thani.
FIBA Organizer allows leagues and governing bodies to manage membership, run competitions and quickly update results and standings online. The software is suitable for running everything from simple local competitions to complex national leagues.
Users can set up their first competition using the inbuilt wizard and then explore the application’s deep basketball based functionality from there.
FIBA Organizer will manage statistics for games and players for both one season and multiple seasons, along with referees allocations, membership records and many other features.
The software comes with many built in reports, allowing users to report on membership, or generate scoresheets for games. In addition users can export data to excel of many other formats, for additional analysis and reporting.
FIBA LiveStats, provided free via download, allows users around the world to record basketball game statistics and webcast that game in real time.
FIBA LiveStats is fully compliant with FIBA rules, and allows the user to set up a game, including players, coaches and officials from both teams, and collect full statistics using a simple point and click method.
Webcasting is incredibly simple, and free, and provided the user is online, the game can be up and webcast within a minute or two of starting.
The software includes box score, play by play and shot chart reporting, which makes it incredibly valuable as any league’s official statistics software.
