Rubro-Koshi wants to win the first title of the season
This Wednesday (21), the Basketball Federation of the State of Rio de Janeiro (FBERJ) published the national championship table in the adult category for the 2022/2023 season. Flamengo will appear for the first time in the semifinals of the competition, on September 28 (Wednesday), against the loser of the confrontation between ASP. Municipal Club and Niterói Basketball Club.
This is because the current season’s national championship will only have three participants, as the other clubs in Rio have reported that they do not have enough budget to play in the tournament with Rubro-Negro. In this way, only the following teams will play in the Rio de Janeiro competition: Flamengo, ASP. Municipal Club and Niterói Basketball Club.
Rio State’s first game will take place on September 27 (Tuesday), between ASP. Municipal Club and Niterói Basketball Club. The loser of the initial clash will face Flamengo next Wednesday (28), for the semi-finals of the competition. The grand final of the tournament will be held on the last Thursday (29) of the month, between Rubro-Negro and the winner of the first duel in the championship.
Flamengo, as usual, is the big favorite to win another national championship title in basketball. Rubro-Negro, it is worth remembering, has lifted the Rio tournament trophy for the last 16 seasons, demonstrating the wide dominance over the other clubs present in Rio de Janeiro.
