Le weekend de l'Open LFB 2012

La 8è édition de l'Open LFB se tiendra les 22 et 23 septembre prochains à Paris-Coubertin. Le lancement de la saison 2012-2013 de Ligue Féminine sera l'occasion de mettre à l'honneur les médaillées d'argent des derniers Jeux Olympiques tout en les retrouvant aussi sous les couleurs de leur club respectif.

Revenue des Jeux Olympiques de Londres avec une médaille d'argent historique, l'Équipe de France féminine sera mise à l'honneur lors de l'Open LFB 2012. Le samedi 22 septembre, juste avant le coup d'envoi du match Bourges - Perpignan, le public du Stade Pierre de Coubertin pourra saluer, une nouvelle fois, la performance des désormais célèbres Braqueuses qui seront réunies au milieu du terrain pour l'occasion.

Des 12 joueuses médaillées à Londres, 8 d'entre elles évoluent en Ligue Féminine et seront donc présentes sur le parquet de Coubertin les 22 et 23 septembre prochains : Céline Dumerc, Endy Miyem et Emméline Ndongue avec Bourges, Emilie Gomis et Edwige Lawson-Wade avec Lattes Montpellier, Clémence Beikes avec le Hainaut Basket, Jennifer Digbeu avec Villeneuve d'Ascq et Marion Laborde sous les couleurs de Basket Landes.

Enfin, des séances de dédicaces prévues tout au long du week end permettront au public d'être au plus près de leurs joueuses préférées.

Pionnière en matière de webdiffusion, la Ligue Féminine de Basket retransmettra cette année encore l'Open LFB avec des commentaires des personnalités reconnues du basket féminin français. Les trois premières rencontres du samedi et l'intégralité de celles du dimanche seront visibles sur le web.
