The Georgian capital city of Tbilisi will host EuroBasket 2021 in a new sports complex, Georgian Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports Mikheil Batiashvili stated today.
Batiashvili says that it is a great victory for Georgian basketball and the country itself to be allowed to host the championship.
