The only annual event for women playing basketball in Paris, the Open LFB, is back for a 9th edition.

140 players take centre stage at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin during the 5th and 6th October for the first round of games for the 2013-2014 Ligue Féminine de Basketball season.

Veuillez trouver en bas de page en français le communiqué de la LFB sur le weekend de l'Open LFB 2013.

The Open LFB is also a celebration of the achievements for the 2012-13 domestic season, the French senior team and the youth internationals.

During the weekend Mathieu Chauvet is to be presented with his award of LFB trainer of the year 2012-2013.

Emma Meesseman and Marianna Tolo are also expected to pick up their player-of-the-year awards.

In addition the following national teams are to be presented to the crowd: France senior women, France U19 and France U18. All three teams picked up silver medals during the summer international championships.


As custom the cameras of LFB TV will provide live streams for the matches on our web-tv page. However the match between Bourges Basket and Angers can only be viewed live on Sport +.

All the games will be archived and made available on demand after the weekend of playing basketball in Paris is over.
