Though basketball dates back more than 120 years, it did not make its Olympic debut until 1936. The presence of basketball at the Berlin games that year was due in large part to the creation of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) in 1932 and the organization of the European Championship in 1935. In the European Championship’s inaugural competition, ten teams participated; since then, as basketball has increased in popularity across the continent, the championship has expanded considerably. In the most recent European Championship—popularly called Eurobasket—36 teams competed.

In European Basketball Championship Results: Since 1935, Tomasz Malolepszy charts the growth and expansion of this popular sport in Europe with a complete statistical history of both the men’s and women’s competition. For the first time ever, basketball fans can find detailed results, rosters, medalists, and standings for the European Championships all in a single volume. In addition, this book contains a list of interesting records, many of which have never before been published. European Basketball Championship Results is a valuable resource for any basketball fan, journalist, or researcher.

Companion volumes to this book include European Soccer Championship Results: Since 1958, European Ice Hockey Championship Results: Since 1910, and European Volleyball Championship Results: Since 1948.
