Eligibility Requirements

Basketball Community Priority Registration Period


There will be a Basketball Community Priority period of at least 1 year from the end of Sunrise until the launch of GA. All registrants filing within this period must supply a token by which the registry will confirm (or not) their approval by the community to apply to register .basketball names within this period. Tokens will be issued by FIBA, through the National Federations and other community-based administrative entities.


A condition of acceptance of invitation to the Community Priority Period is that the Applicant must use the domain name(s) within one (1) year of allocation. Except with the express written permission of Registry, if the Community Priority Applicant fails to use the domain name for a website within 1 year of registration, then RO reserves the right to revoke, suspend or cancel the registration. Use may include forwarding, other transitional arrangements, hosted website or display marketing including online or offline advertising.
