Background information:

'Her World, Her Rules' is a unique project and social media campaign, led by FIBA Europe and aimed to promote women's and girls' basketball across Europe through various activities delivered in partnership with the National Federations.

The FIBA Europe Board approved the allocation of new funds to support the main goal of attracting girls to the sport at primary and secondary school ages (6-15 years old) through a global campaign called 'Her World, Her Rules'.

The project is supported by some of the most prominent female players such as Alba Torrens, Emma Meesseman and Maria Vadeeva who gave their full endorsement on the occasion of the SuperCup Women Final in Ekaterinburg in October.

FIBA Europe is currently working in partnership with National Federations across Europe to embed the campaign. The total investment will be up to 1 million euros across the next two years, including co-financing from those selected for the project.

The initiative will be based on a range of engagement activities, including collaboration with schools and clubs on 3x3, mini-basketball and coaching clinics. FIBA Europe's Project Management Committee has been tasked with selecting the best 25 projects in 2018, and best 25 projects in 2019.
