On February 14th, Valentine's Day, Sweden will receive Croatia to hopefully secure its European Championship ticket. "It will be a historic match because it's the first time ever the femenil team is playing at Hovet, the public record for femenil basket will shake and it will be a declaration of love for both the team and our sport," says Johannes Wohlert at the Swedish Basketball Federation.
The team got a dream start on the European Championship qualifier, winning both Croatia and Macedonia. In February there are two home matches on the game schedule, matches that can be crucial for advancement. "It is clear that home wins against Italy and Croatia would put us in a perfect position to win the group," said Francois Gomez, the federation.
Swedish basketball is now a great opportunity to give the team all the opportunities for fantastic public support. The match against Italy will be played in Borås and the match against Croatia will be played at Hovet.
