FIBA on Friday August 7 2015 awarded the hosting rights for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 to the People's Republic of China.
The People's Republic of China and the Republic of the Philippines were the two finalists bidding to host FIBA's flagship event four years from now.
The decision was taken by FIBA's Central Board after both candidates submitted their bids and each gave presentations during the Host Announcement Ceremony.
The Central Board vote saw 14 in favour of China's bid, with seven backing that of Philippines.
This is the first time that China will host FIBA's flagship event.
