The first match is in Albania with Austria, on August 2. I could say that this year, there are more new entries, except Bushati, who is already known for the national team and Albanian basketball. The national team is one of the best in years and today's players are certainly the best of all time. We claim a victory for Albania, and occupy one of the best places, if not the first, the second, that's what we claim for this season.” In the European Qualifying Championship will take part 7 teams. Two for adults and 5 for ages 14, 16 and 18. The matches of August 2 and 18, will be played at the new palace of sports, standards of which are already approved by FIFA.
