BASKETBALL WIEN is not obliged to reimburse the fees if the event should occur due to force majeure such as war, revolution or natural disasters, pandemics, strikes or unforeseeable incidents must be canceled at short notice (by the authorities).

Each team leader must ensure that their players are adequately insured both on and off the field

We advise our participants and those responsible not to leave any valuables or money unattended!

Security procedures

As security procedures at big events have become an increasingly important topic, the management team of our Easter tournament Basketball Wien Osterturnier, has decided to make small, but effective changes in terms of organization and the course of the event.

The following applies to Viennese teams as well!

  1. All players, coaches and other attendees have to register at the tournament’s office by bringing a residential registration form (name, date of birth, place of birth, passport number, team name). The residential registration forms can either be brought along to the check-in, or can be emailed to us in advance.

  2. According with this residential registration form, EACH tournament participant will receive a tournament pass, which can be used to gain entry to all tournament venues.

  3. Visitors/ Spectators can download a visitor's pass on our website. After filling out all important details, we will email you the pass immediately. This pass can then be shown in print or electronically (on your mobile telephone) at venue entrances. 

This tournament pass will be available in different types and will gain you entry to all tournament venues, which means all courts, accommodation schools, and also the main tournament venue Wiener Stadthalle. Furthermore, the tournament pass can contain – depending on the services you will book – a free sight-seeing tour, lodging (breakfast, lunch and dinner), a transport ticket for public transport and a tournament map.

So far, we have offered the following versions of our tournament pass: deluxe, regular and light. Since 2017, there is another modification called “PURE”. The pass “PURE” will be given to those, who have not claimed any services like accommodation or catering, and will be used as proof of being a tournament participant. Because of this, we would like to ask you to plan some time ahead for check-in to pick up your tournament passes.

Medical care

The organizer will not assume liability for injuries and accidents!

Each participant is responsible for their own insurance and medical treatment.

The European Health Insurance Card is valid in Austria of course. It is a free card that gives you access to medically necessary, state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in any of the 28 EU countries, as well as Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, under the same conditions and at the same cost (free in some countries) as people insured in that country.

Cards are issued by your national health insurance provider.

Important – the European Health Insurance Card...

  • is not an alternative to travel insurance. It does not cover any private healthcare or costs such as a return flight to your home country or lost/stolen property.
  • does not cover your costs if you are travelling for the express purpose of obtaining medical treatment.
  • does not guarantee free services. As each country’s healthcare system is different. Services that cost nothing at home might not be free in another country.

Of course an emergency service for first aid is available at the main tournament hall.
