EuroBasket 2013 is proving there are limitless boundaries as to where basketball can be played, with a game now set to take place on the sea, following a game in Postojna Cave at the EuroBasket 2013 Draw.

In another unique promotional event for EuroBasket 2013, three teams will take part in a mini-tournament on the raft with Dino Radja, Dino Meneghin and Rasho Nesterovic captaining the teams.

The game will take place on a raft, 300m off the Slovenian coast, close to Koper. The raft measures 40m x 20m and is 3m high, weighing in at 1,500 tonnes.

With stands not logistically possible, viewing the game live will be limited to a host of invited guests and media, the latter of whom will watch from an adjacent ship - Prince of Venice.

“I have played at various locations in Slovenia, Europe and the NBA, but never at the  sea, so I am looking forward to the event," said one of the day's captains, Nesterovic, adding, "I am happy that Dino Radja and Dino Meneghin, who put together two interesting teams, were pleased to join the project."

“EuroBasket 2013 LOC is intensively trying to create an amazing picture of Slovenia, Koper and EuroBasket and send it out to the world," said EuroBasket 2013 Communications Manager Anze Blazic, who is confident the event will capture the attention of international media.
