Veliaj welcomes Tirana basketball players who were declared champions in the Federation Cup: It is only the first cup from many others
Tirana was the winning team of the Men's Basketball Federation Cup 2021. The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, who hosted the champions of the basketball tournament, expressed his pride for this victory and wished them victory in other leagues as well. .
"It is an extraordinary pleasure today to wait for the champions of Tirana in basketball. We started with the Federation Cup and I can’t wait to be just first in many cups and many achievements. It is not only the best team in Albania, but also the team with the best boys, because it is not enough just to be a sportsman or a good artist, but above all you have to be a good citizen. "These boys are first good citizens and then they bring cups," said Veliaj.
The mayor also praised the latest business initiative for sponsoring basketball teams, promoting the same for entrepreneurs and other teams.
"I appreciate very much that Neptun has become a sponsor of our team in Tirana. He has chosen the right team at the right time, when we too are doing our best for the sport and we have given it attention like never before, but we also need the private sector. So I am very happy that Neptune opens this innovation, but we have other teams as well. "If there are enterprises or other businesses that want to be general sponsors, let them do it," said the mayor of Tirana.
The Albanian Basketball Federation decided to restore the Federation Cup in the 2021-2022 season. This tour did not take place in our country for five years.
