Global Seminar at Philippine Embassy in Tokyo right before the FIBA World Cup big match!


一昨年はセルビア大使館にて開催された「バスケを通して世界を知る~Pivot Globally~」セミナーシリーズの第2弾が、FIBAワールドカップ予選ビッグゲーム直前の2月21日(水)夜にフィリピン大使館にて開催されます。


Following the Next Big Pivot’s first global seminar at Serbian Embassy two years ago, the second one will be organized at Philippine Embassy on Wednesday night, Feb 21, right before the big mach on the weekend.

As Japan lost the close game against Philippine in November last year, the away game on the weekend is very important, and it is a right timing for Japanese basketball fans to learn more about the country’s culture and history. With comments on the points of the big game by special guest who is an experienced journalist on Philippine, the discussions will be developed deep into its player development system that nurtured one of the best basketball bases in Asia
