Great Britain’s men will play their November EuroBasket qualifiers against France and Montenegro in Pau.

Although the southern French city has been chosen as a centre venue for the window, Jeep League’s Pau-Orthez this week had its whole team test positive for coronavirus.

The bubble venue for GB women’s Euro qualification contest against Poland in mid-November will be Istanbul, FIBA also announced.

The decision to play both windows in bubbles, instead of home and away games, for men’s competitions was confirmed by the FIBA Executive Committee in September after taking into consideration the health and safety of players, coaches and officials, and following a recommendation from the Medical and Competitions Commissions.

In a statement FIBA said: “The most important criteria in choosing the hosts was health, travel guarantees and compliance with FIBA health protocols, including testing and controlled entry into a secure environment.”
