The Welsh national basketball team is the basketball side that represents Wales in international competition. They are organised by Basketball Wales, the sport's governing body in Wales. In 2005 Wales, along with England Basketball and basketballscotland combined forces to form the Great Britain national basketball team, with the target goal to field a competitive team capable of winning medals at the London 2012 summer Olympics. England's and Scotland's affiliation to FIBA will end on 30 September 2016 but Wales did not sign the agreement with British Basketball Federation and FIBA.[1]
