Lebanon’s basketball team will host its New Zealand counterpart on Thursday, November 10th, at the Camille Chamoun Sports City as part of the FIBA Basketball World Cup qualifiers – window 5, which will be hosted by 3 Asian countries next year.

Both teams have already secured qualification, as Lebanon will be participating in the World cup for the 4th time in history after qualifying in 2002, 2006, and 2010.

Lebanon achieved its first victory over New Zealand in the last Asian Championship, in which the Lebanese basketball players were announced as the runner-ups.

Lebanon will also host India on Sunday, November 13th, within the same window.
