The Uruguayan Basketball Federation (Spanish: Federacion Uruguaya de Basketball, FUBB) is the governing body of basketball in Uruguay. It was founded in 1915 and is in charge of the Uruguay national basketball team and the Liga Uruguaya de Basketball.

History[edit]

Under the presidency of Federico Crocker. Basketball languished in Uruguay under the effects of Association football's popularity; at the 1936 Olympic Games, however, the Uruguayan National basketball team obtained a sixth place, which helped boost the sport's popularity in the Latin American country. That same year, the "FUBB" became a member of FIBA. After, the Uruguayan Basketball team won two bronze medals, in the olympic games of Helsinki 1952 and Melbourne 1956, both times after USA and USSR.

Later on, basketball in Uruguay also confronted a rivalry in the form of rugby. Basketball has, however, enjoyed steady popularity in the country, a fact which has helped the Federacion Uruguaya de Basketball in Spanish) to survive for more than 90 years.

Federico Slinger took over presidency of the federation in 1981; he remained in office for sixteen years, holding the record for the longest tenure as president of the Uruguayan Basketball Federation.

After the 2005 season, the "FUBB" announced that Uruguayan police had become considered an important ally in order to prevent violence among fans during or after professional basketball games in Uruguay.
