Tribunal (2021)

FIBA's BAT is basically a place where legal issues in the basketball world can be solved with the legal help of the international basketball federation. *FIBA's yearly migration report (pages 22, or 21 and 23 respectively depending on the year of the report) has provided us with the exact numbers of BAT procedures since the beginning of the tribunal. The countries involved will have a certain amount of points substracted from their top (two) league's ranking points. Approximately 90% of the cases take place in men's basketball and in 90% of the cases, a club from the country's top tier is involved. The BAT makes sense for legal issues about higher salary contracts.
