Argentina have applied to host the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup

Argentina have put in an application to host the 2023 FIBA World Cup with three other nations also interested.

The South American nation hosted the tournament in 1950 and again in 1990 and with the 15,000 DirecT Arena in the capital Buenos Aires, opening their doors last October, they have a suitable venue to host the final rounds of the event, should they get it.

Turkey, Qatar and Germany have also put in a reported bid to host the tournament as well, despite the former hosting next year’s Eurobasket and EuroLeague Final Four.
