Basketball Africa President Amadou Gallo Fall statement regarding Dynamo Basketball Club

PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA – Basketball Africa League (BAL) President Amadou Gallo Fall today issued the following statement regarding Dynamo Basketball Club’s decision to forfeit its participation in the 2024 BAL season.

“Dynamo Basketball Club (Burundi) has further refused to comply with the Basketball Africa League’s rules and requirements governing jerseys and uniforms, thereby forfeiting today’s game against Petro de Luanda (Angola) and its participation in the 2024 BAL season.  Under FIBA rules, two forfeitures in the same tournament trigger the club’s automatic withdrawal.  This is a very unfortunate situation for the players and fans, and we share the frustrations of everyone involved.  All remaining Kalahari Conference games will be played as scheduled, and we look forward to engaging fans in Pretoria through expanded fan and community events.”
