Basketball head admits cost an issue
BASKETBALL’s regional body is looking at subsidising some costs so it can get back to spreading the wealth.
Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) president Glyne Clarke believes member countries will continue to shy away from hosting the regional tournament until his executive can shoulder some of the huge financial burden.
Clarke expressed the sentiment against the backdrop of Tortola staging three of the last four Caribbean championships, including last week’s men’s and women’s tourneys.
“We as an entity must be able to secure some of the cost to help run the tournament, especially in the technical areas, because all of the cost is at the host country and this is a significant bill because CBC in 2014 and 2015 is not what it was prior to 2011,” reasoned Clarke.
