Representing Australia's heritage and spirit of unity

Marlii's Story - the inspiration behind the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup

The logo for the FIBA Women’s World Cup 2022 was inspired by 14-year-old Aboriginal basketballer and artist Amarlie ‘Marlii’ Briscoe and represents Australia’s heritage and spirit of unity. Briscoe created a stunning piece of Indigenous artwork titled ‘My Story’, representing everything she loves in her life, including her biggest loves – ‘art’, ‘basketball’, ‘culture’ and ‘country’. These symbols of love from her artwork have been represented within the traditional basketball-shaped logo, which also features the newly launched FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup trophy.
