FIBA Asia Cup 2021 Qualifiers November window host cities confirmed

BEIRUT (Lebanon) - The host cities of the upcoming November 2020 windows of the FIBA Asia Cup 2021 Qualifiers have been confirmed. 

The confirmed hosting cities will be Bahrain (Manama), Qatar (Doha), and Jordan (Amman).

Manama, Bahrain is set as hosts for games in Groups A and D. Group A teams include Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand. Group D teams include Bahrain, Iraq, Lebanon, and India.

Meanwhile, Doha, Qatar will be hosting games in Groups B and E. Group B teams include China, Japan, Chinese Taipei, and Malaysia. Group E teams include Qatar, Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia.

Amman, Jordan will serve as the site for Window 2 games in Group F that includes Palestine, Jordan, Kazakhstan and Sri Lanka. 

The most important criteria in choosing the hosts were health and travel guarantees and compliance with FIBA health protocols, including testing and controlled entry into a secure environment.  

The exact schedule of games will be confirmed later.  

The decision to play both windows in bubbles, instead of home and away games, for men's competitions, was confirmed by the FIBA Executive Committee in September after taking into consideration the health and safety of players, coaches, and officials, and following a recommendation from the Medical and Competitions Commissions.

FIBA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Asia on a daily basis and communicate further updates regarding FIBA Competitions when necessary.
