FISU Mourns FIBA International Referee Gianluca Mattioli

Gianluca Mattioli, 1967-2017


LAUSANNE - It is with great sadness that FISU learned of the news that Gianluca Mattioli, the Italian FIBA International Referee for 3x3 Basketball, passed away earlier this week.


Professionally, Gianluca was very much involved with Basketball. This included being the Chief of Referees at the FISU World University 3x3 Basketball League and a much-loved and highly-valued member of the FIBA team.  Before FIBA, Gianluca was a Euroleague referee. At FISU, Gianluca was involved since the inaugural FISU 3x3 Basketball event in 2015.


Gianluca will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of working with him during his time on on and off the 3x3 Basketball courts, both with FIBA and FISU. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.
