Launch of FIBA World Cup Qualifiers app offers customized info at your fingertips

MIES (Switzerland) - The official FIBA Basketball World Cup Qualifiers app, presented by Global FIBA Partner Tissot, is now available as a free download on Apple and Android devices with the latest news about the upcoming window.

Users will have plenty of information at their fingertips, as well as the ability to customize the experience by selecting favorite teams and players. Up to three teams and 10 players can be chosen to follow throughout qualifiers.


The app allows fans to follow everything about the qualifiers, which will be played over six windows in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe - including the latest news stories and insights alongside live game stats, up-to-date standings and videos.

The first games in the qualifying campaign start on November 25, 2021, and conclude with action in the sixth and final window in February 2023.

The app is available on both iOS and Android devices and is free to download.

There will be 32 teams at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, which is to be staged in Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines from August 25 to September 10.


Qualification for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 follows the FIBA Men's National Team Competition System, which sets out the road to all of FIBA's main men's competitions.

Following its successful implementation in the lead-up to the last edition of FIBA's flagship event in 2019, the same principles have been applied to continue to ensure regular and competitive national team games for fans from all around the world to experience.

The Qualifiers format for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 remains unchanged, with six windows over a 15-month period across the four regions of Africa, Americas, Asia (including Oceania) and Europe.

The Qualifiers take place from November 2021 to February 2023 with 80 national teams competing for a spot in the World Cup.
