Olympic Qualification


The FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 will qualify directly seven teams to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games while the 16 next best classified teams at the World Cup will get the chance of qualifying through the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments. The lineup for the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments will be completed by two additional teams per region for a total of 24 teams, who will compete in four tournaments of six teams each. 

The FIBA World Ranking Men, presented by NIKE, published after the FIBA Basketball World Cup will determine those eight additional teams. The two best-ranked teams per region (Africa, Americas, Asia-Oceania and Europe) who are not already qualified directly for Tokyo 2020 or for the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments will also be selected to play in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments.

The winner of each FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament will qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
