The draw ceremony for the FIBA World Cup 2023 Qualifiers took place today at the Patrick Baumann House of Basketball.
This was the first step for national teams that will be competing for spots at the FIBA World Cup 2023.
The 2023 event, which will be held in the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia, is the first time in the competition’s history that a World Cup will be staged in more than one country.
The qualifying process for the FIBA World Cup 2023 will take place in six windows over the course of 15 months across the four regions of Africa, Americas, Asia/Oceania and Europe.
A total of 80 national teams were drawn in four different draws, one for each region.
