The Oman Basketball Association (OBA), led by the Competitions Committee, announced the official schedule for the second edition of the Credit Oman Basketball Cup 2023. The schedule was unanimously approved during a meeting convened at the OBA headquarters within the Oman Olympic Committee and Sports Associations building. This gathering was in the presence of club representatives participating in the tournament.

The basketball action is scheduled to kick off on Sunday, September 10, at the sub-hall of the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Bausher with the participation of four prominent clubs: Al Bashayer, Al Seeb, Nizwa and Oman Club.

The inaugural match is slated for 7 pm on September 10, when Al Seeb Club square off against Nizwa Club in what promises to be an intense battle between two formidable teams. The excitement continues on September 12, as Al Bashayer Club take on Oman Club, the tournament's new entrant.

Following these match-ups, the second round will feature two riveting encounters on September 16. In the first bout, scheduled for 5 pm, Nizwa Club will play with Al Bashayer, promising a thrilling Derby of Al Dakhiliyah Governorate. Subsequently, at 7 pm, Al Seeb Club will face off against Oman Club, setting the stage for further competition. The tournament's third round will unfold on September 19, featuring a clash between Al Bashayer and Al Seeb. The action-packed third round concludes on September 21, with Nizwa taking on Oman Club.

The tournament will continue on September 23, as the first-placed team faces the fourth-placed team and the second-placed team takes on the third-placed team. The grand finale is scheduled for Sunday, September 24.

The Second Credit Oman Basketball Cup will adopt a one-round league system through which the teams are ranked from first to fourth. And then the teams play with the scissors system, with the first meeting with the fourth, and the second with the third, with teams vying for top honours through rigorous competition. Local players will take centre stage, as foreign professionals will not participate in the tournament.

The championship team will be awarded the coveted championship cup and 25 gold medals, while the second-placed team will receive 25 silver medals.

The tournament strictly adheres to international rules and regulations, applying all penalties and sanctions as per international law and tournament-approved guidelines.
