The traditional Open LFB in Paris launches the start of the 17th season of the LFB. Its season ends in April 2015 with the French Championship play-offs.

The second division of French basketball with just 13 teams ends in May 2015 with the LF2 final four.

We from wbbif start the 2014-15 campaign by reviewing the 10th edition of the Open LFB and then update our weekly basketball news.

All links for the latest stories can be found below and in the right menu.

The growth of social media channels and live basketball platforms have changed the way in which basketball news is covered. The LFB website has been updated and has all the statistics and history one desires.

As a consequence commencing from the 2014-2015 wbbif concentrate more on writing about the people involved in basketball at all levels with articles, interviews and videos.

There are no major changes in the LFB this season. At the end of the regular season, the top four teams play off for the title of Champions of France and for a place in the EuroLeague Women tournament for the following year.

The play-off series follows the format used during the 2011-2012 season.

The LFB Challenge Round is the post-season competition for the teams that finish between 5th and 8th place.

In LF2, the top four teams play in a Final Four, hosted by the team that finishes first during the regular season.

Tout brille pour la LFB !

10th edition of Open LFBGloire et glamour dans la LFB

Pour la saison 2014-15, l'Open LFB célèbre sa 10e édition et ouvre la 17e saison en ligue féminine de basketball avec 14 formations à y participant. Le déroulement de la saison régulière ne change pas.

Les quatre meilleures équipes se qualifient alors pour les play-offs pour se disputer le titre de champion de France. Par contre, les équipes de la 5ème à la 8ème place participent au LFB Challenge Round.

Pour les six formations en bas du tableau, la saison s'achève là avec la 13ième et 14ième équipe se trouvant sur des places de relégation.

Il y a une équipe promue cette saison, le COB Calais, après une absence de quatre ans en LFB.

wbbif vous fournit également des informations sur la LF2 dont normalement en moins une équipe se qualifierera pour la 1e division pour la prochaine saison.
