A truly great match for Belgium in the Olympic qualifiers. The Belgian cats compete against the world champions USA. The European champions have also drawn Nigeria and Senegal en route to Paris, starting in Antwerp.
As European champions, the Belgian cats have a mission in their home country. In Group B, Belgium have to beat USA, Nigeria and Senegal. Lotto Arena and Sportpaleis will be the venues for the three matches.
A fun challenge awaits our guys as they compete against American stars from the WNBA on February 8, 2024.
Although there was no fear in the Belgian camp. “We believe in our playing opportunities,” said general manager Goen Umans. “As European champions, we should not be afraid of any opponent. With the home crowd on our side, we have an extra trump card.
The Cats drawing an outright winner should have no effect on their chances of qualifying for the Games. In addition to No. 1, the world No. 6 will compete against Nos. 11 and 20 in the rankings.
The U.S. has already qualified for the Games, and two teams could compete in next summer's Games in Paris.
