AfroCan is the new competition of African national teams directed by FIBA Africa. The idea of creating this competition stems from the decision to organize the FIBA AfroBasket every four years instead of two years as before. The next edition of this competition is due to take place in 2021, it was therefore up to FIBA Africa to try to fill the gap that the national teams would have to endure during the four years between the last and the next edition of this competition. AfroCan is opened to all players evolving on the African continent. In its format, this competition will give players plying their trade on the African continent the opportunity to showcase their talents.
