FIBA slaps Korea, China, Chinese-Taipei hefty fine

South Korea, China, and Chinese Taipei will pay a hefty price for failing to participate in the second window of the FIBA Asia Cup 2021 Qualifiers.

FIBA announced it has slapped the 3 federations a disciplinary fine of CHF 160,000 (around P8.5 million), with half of that sanction being given to each national federation participating in the next window.

Korea did not join the previous window due to coronavirus concerns.

Also, FIBA deducted each violating countries 2 points in the qualifiers – the 1 point being awarded to each of the other competing nations.

In the case of Group A, Gilas Pilipinas, Thailand, and Indonesia will each get an additional 1 point in the standings, while Korea will have its 4 points shaved to just 2 points.

Korea is slated to play 4 games in the third and final window, twice against the Philippines and one each against Indonesia and Thailand.

The Philippines will host the third window for Groups A and C in a bubble in Clark, Pampanga. – Rappler.com
