FIBA World Cup love affair with Asia continues

The FIBA World Cup 2019 will once again begin world basketball’s love affair with the beautiful continent of Asia after an unforgettable stint with Europe.

And after two memorable FIBA World Cup tournaments in Turkey in 2010 and then in Spain, four years later, it is time for China to take centre stage with the draw for the qualifiers taking place last week.

The Asian nations have not fared so well in recent tournaments but the World Cup could provide the continent with new hope, and especially with Tokyo set to host the 2020 Olympics, Japan aims to be seen as a new power in Asian basketball with the women’s national side amongst the top 15 in the world and the men proving their worth having competed in the FIBA Olympic Qualifiers last summer.

But it’s worth noting that with all that’s going on in the international basketball world, there’s still the thrill of the NBA Playoffs as well as the EuroLeague Final Four and domestic league across Asia to feast on.

That’s why the joy of betting in Asia is on the rise as well as the popularity of basketball and with asianbookie, you can stand a great chance of improving your financial worth with accurate odds on several basketball encounters from now until the World Cup in China and beyond.

Asia is now the home of world basketball, and now the sports betting arena.
