Jones Cup On the Way Back

William Jones Cup, the biggest annual summer basketball event in Taiwan, maybe is on its way back.

Due to the lack of sponsorship and budget, CTBA originally decided to drop the event this year and opted for a 4-countries mini-tournament. By the help of NSC (National Sports Council) president Hsu Yi-shun, CTBA said it will do everything to keep the Jones Cup alive.

If everything goes well, the Jones Cup will be held in early-August in Fongshan, Kaohsiung County (which is located in southern Taiwan). CTBA sacretary general Yu Wen-wei said the best time for the Jones Cup will be early August, since the ABC Championships is in late July, the World University Games is in late August and the ABC Women's Championships is in September.
