The FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Qualifier between Great Britain and Belarus at the Vertu Motors Arena on Monday 28 February has been postponed.

In a statement on Friday evening, FIBA said: “The decision is based on the evaluation of the current security situation.

“FIBA is closely monitoring the security situation in Europe, as players’ and officials’ safety remain FIBA’s primary concern.”

Tickets purchased through the box office will be refunded and all ticket holders will receive an email notifying them of this process next week.

A rescheduled date for the game will be announced by FIBA in due course.
