FIBA

The International Basketball Federation, more commonly known as FIBA, from its French name Fédération Internationale de Basket-ball, is an association of national organizations which governs international competition in basketball. Originally known as the Fédération Internationale de Basket-ball Amateur (hence FIBA), in 1989 it dropped the word Amateur from its official name but retained the initialism; the “BA” now represents the first two letters of basketball.
