BEIRUT (Lebanon) - The FIBA Asia Cup is touring its way from Lebanon to Indonesia as part of the build up towards the start of the main event. FIBA Asia Cup 2022 will be played in Jakarta, Indonesia from 12-24 July.

Here we keep track of where the trophy has gone through in the first ever FIBA Asia Cup Trophy Tour, along with some stunning photos to capture the elegant scenery worthy of the Asia Cup's appearance.

April 9-10: Byblos & Beirut, Lebanon

 

The trophy tour started in Lebanon where the previous FIBA Asia Cup in 2017 was staged. Lebanon have been to the Asia Cup Final 3 times.

April 12-13: Damascus, Syria

 

Syria hosted a historic home game at the FIBA World Cup 2023 Asian Qualifiers late last year and now the FIBA Asia Cup has also made an appearance in Damascus. Syria will be playing in their second straight Asia Cup this July.

April 24-25: Bahrain, Manama

 

Bahrain are one of three national teams to have qualified from the first ever Pre-Qualifiers to play in the FIBA Asia Cup.  They will be making their 9th Asia Cup appearance all-time - and first since 2013.

April 27-28: Bengaluru, India

 

India have not missed playing in a FIBA Asia Cup since the year 2000 and their trip to Jakarta will be their 10th consecutive appearance in the region's premiere competition.

May 6-7: Amman, Jordan

Jordan will be making their 9th consecutive appearance in the Asia Cup this summer. The Falcons are consistently considered perennial contenders and are looking forward to make it back to the Semi-Finals of the Asia Cup for the first time since 2011.

May 21-22: Tokyo, Japan

Japan have played in all but one FIBA Asia Cup, totaling for 29 appearances. They're most recent trip to the Semi-Finals was in 2015 and they will certainly be aiming to get back there once again this year.
