BASKETBALL Fiji has launched its FIBA Oceania under-19 championship countdown at Ed's Court in Raiwaqa yesterday.

The association says it wants the public to be aware of the event coming up in December at the Vodafone Arena.

"We're starting our countdown to the Oceania U19 championship," said Basketball Fiji's development officer Laisiasa Puamau.

"It's the first time we're hosting this event so it is very significant to us and we want to make it a special way."

The Oceania championship will also be the qualifiers for the World U19 Championship.

Paumau said Fiji would be the first country to host the world championship. He said over 300 qualifiers would be part of the event.

Countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Guam, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Samoa, American Samoa, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea and Fiji will be vying for a spot.
