Basketball

Basketball

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender's hoop (a basket 18 inches in diameter mounted 10 feet high to a backboard at each end of the court, while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one, two or three one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play is mandated.

Iceland

Iceland

Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and in the Arctic Ocean. Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the biggest part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that rises above sea level, and its central volcanic plateau is erupting almost constantly. The interior consists of a plateau characterised by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle. Its high latitude and marine influence keep summers chilly, and most of its islands have a polar climate.

Icelandic language

Icelandic language

Icelandic is a North Germanic language spoken by about 314,000 people, the vast majority of whom live in Iceland, where it is the national language. As a West Scandinavian language, it is most closely related to Faroese, extinct Norn, and western Norwegian dialects.

Promotion and relegation

Promotion and relegation

In sports leagues, promotion and relegation is a process where teams are transferred between multiple divisions based on their performance for the completed season. Leagues that use promotion and relegation systems are often called open leagues. In a system of promotion and relegation, the best-ranked team(s) in the lower division are promoted to the higher division for the next season, and the worst-ranked team(s) in the higher division are relegated to the lower division for the next season. In some leagues, playoffs or qualifying rounds are also used to determine rankings. This process can continue through several levels of divisions, with teams being exchanged between adjacent divisions. During the season, teams that are high enough in the league table that they would qualify for promotion are sometimes said to be in the promotion zone, and those at the bottom are in the relegation zone or Reg zone.

History

Creation

The 1. deild karla was founded in 1964. Up until 1978 it was known as 2. deild karla.

ÍS and ÍKF's dominance

For the first years, from its foundation in 1964 until the 1970–71 season, the 1. deild was led by the ÍS (with 3 wins) and ÍKF (with 2 wins).

Fram Reykjavík's leadership

Some years later, from the 1974–75 season, the Fram Reykjavík started their leadership on the 1. deild and their series of wins, that ended in the 1985–86 season when they won their fourth title.

Danny Shouse

In 1979, Danny Shouse joined Ármann and took the league by storm. On December 1, 1979, Shouse scored 100 points against Skallagrímur, setting the Icelandic single game scoring record.[1][2] In January 1980 he scored 76 points in an overtime loss against Grindavík[3] and in February he broke the 70 point barrier again, scoring 72 points against Þór Akureyri.[4] His scoring prowess helped Ármann win the league and achieve promotion to the Úrvalsdeild karla.[2] Even though Shouse played in the nations tier 2 league during his first season, he was widely regarded as one of the best players in the country.[5][6]

The double fall of ÍR

After their golden years, in which they won 15 Úrvalsdeild karla titles in less than 25 years, the ÍR was relegated to the First Division. In the 1986–87 season they won for their first time the 1. deild and came back to the Úrvalsdeild karla. Afterwards, the ÍR was relegated again to the 1. deild. In the 1999–00 season they won their second 1. deild title and came back to the Úrvalsdeild karla.

Modern era

In the 2006–07 season, Þór Akureyri won their fifth title. In the following season, the 2007–08 season, also the Breiðablik won their fifth title, becoming the most successful franchise together with the Þór Akureyri. In the 2011–12 season, the KFÍ won their fourth title.[7]

On 13 March 2020, the rest of the 2019–20 season was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in Iceland.[8]

COVID-19 pandemic in Iceland

COVID-19 pandemic in Iceland

The COVID-19 pandemic in Iceland is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. The virus was confirmed to have reached Iceland in February 2020. As of 4 June 2022, the total number of cases registered was 188,924, of which 153 deaths had occurred. With a total population of about 370,000, the infection rate is about one case per four inhabitants; the infection rate was one of the highest in the world throughout March and April in 2021, though this was attributed to more tests having been carried out per capita in Iceland than any other country, including a screening of the general population run by Icelandic biotech company deCODE genetics to determine the true spread of the virus in the community.

Teams

The league originated in 1964 and, currently, consists of 9 teams. Þór Akureyri have won the most championships with 6 titles.

Iceland

Iceland

Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and in the Arctic Ocean. Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the biggest part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that rises above sea level, and its central volcanic plateau is erupting almost constantly. The interior consists of a plateau characterised by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle. Its high latitude and marine influence keep summers chilly, and most of its islands have a polar climate.

COVID-19 pandemic in Iceland

COVID-19 pandemic in Iceland

The COVID-19 pandemic in Iceland is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. The virus was confirmed to have reached Iceland in February 2020. As of 4 June 2022, the total number of cases registered was 188,924, of which 153 deaths had occurred. With a total population of about 370,000, the infection rate is about one case per four inhabitants; the infection rate was one of the highest in the world throughout March and April in 2021, though this was attributed to more tests having been carried out per capita in Iceland than any other country, including a screening of the general population run by Icelandic biotech company deCODE genetics to determine the true spread of the virus in the community.
