Dr. Ramin Tabatabaei, President of Iran Basketball Federation thanked the National Media for their responsible support to basketball, especially Sport Channel, for its unprecedented live broadcast of Pro League competitions.

Iran Basketball Federation; Tehran: In a message of appreciation on behalf of Ramin Tabatabai it is highlighted:

Dear Mr. Sina Motazedi
The Management of IRIB Sport Channel

In a difficult year when the infamous Corona virus caused serious damage to sports in Iran and the world, fortunately the Basketball Federation managed to successfully end the Pro League by holding 154 games in Tehran. In the meantime, the live TV broadcast of 69 competitions on the Sport Channel, especially the semi-final and final series of games, is highly appreciated; which was also widely watched by the Iranian sports community and even the world.

If today in most countries of the world the talks are around the spectacular moments of the fourth final of the Pro League between Mehram and Gorgan and if the videos of this game have millions of views on virtual pages, undoubtedly the main part of such reflection is thanks to the correct broadcast by National Media and Sport Channel.

Basketball, as an Olympic and prestigious sport, in the current situation needs the support of more and more organizations and institutions in order to maintain the achievements as well as to gaining success in the upcoming events.

While thanking you again for your unwavering support, Mr. Mohammad Reza Pourhassan, the Director of Sport Channel Broadcast Section and your other hard-working colleagues, I hope that by continuing this process, we will see the flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran raised in international arenas raised by our basketball players”.

Ramin Tabatabai
President of the Basketball Federation
