The Somalia national basketball team is the national basketball team of Somalia. It is a member of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and is governed by the Somali Basketball Federation.

Administration[edit]

As of April 2014, Nur Mohamed Abdullahi serves as the president of the Somalia Basketball Federation. Said Duale is the Secretary General.[1]

History[edit]

The Somalia Basketball Federation became affiliated with FIBA in 1960.[1] It is part of the executive board of the Arab Basketball Confederation.[2]

Although the national basketball squad has yet to pass the qualification stages of the FIBA World Championship, it won a bronze medal at the 1981 FIBA Africa Championship, when Somalia hosted the tournament. The team also participates in the basketball event at the Pan Arab Games.
