The FIBA Basketball World Cup logo was unveiled today in Shanghai ahead of the event which commences in the summer of 2019.

The logo draws its inspiration from the Beijing Opera, one of the most symbolic cultural icons of China.

It showcases the legends of the strongest with the colourful facial make-up of the actors symbolising characteristics such as wisdom, persistence, power and perfection – the exact qualities the participating players and national teams at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 will need in order to succeed.
