FIBA Internal Regulations Book 3
A FIBA A License is required for all Non UK Nationals (under 18 or Senior) playing each season, in the BBL or WBBL. If the player is returning to the BBL or WBBL, having been registered to play last season i.e. 2020-2021, then no new FIBA Player Letter of Clearance will be required. Use the FIBA A License Application Form below.
If the player was registered to play with another club (BBL/WBBL ) in Great Britain in season 2020-2021, then the current internal BBL / WBBL transfer process (IF APPLICABLE) should be followed. The FIBA system will be checked to ensure a valid International Clearance is held by FIBA.
If the player is transferring from another NON BBL/WBBL Club then the GB Internal Transfer process will be followed. The BBF will communicate with the applicant club direct on the process required.
