The basketball team is still unable to travel to Canada due to lack of visas

Caracas. – The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mervyn Maldonado, reported that Canada has not issued visas for the men’s basketball team, despite it having submitted the application two months ago, to play against the North American country on Thursday, November 10.

Maldonado confirmed that the Venezuelan Basketball Federation (FVB) conducted the team’s participation process “in this qualifying window for the World Cup 2023”.

This is a commitment of vital importance to those led by Fernando Douro, as it is a direct duel to lead Group E due to the fact that Canada controls the region with 16 units, while Venezuela follows closely with one point lower.

The commitment between the two teams is scheduled for next Thursday in the Canadian city of Edmonto, where both teams will have to take the podium at the Expo Center from 10:10 pm (Venezuela time), but this situation complicates the entire organization of the transfer of the tricolor team.
