FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Pre-Qualifiers Second Round Groups confirmed

MUNICH (FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Pre-Qualifiers) – Following the completion of the First Round of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers, the field has been set for the Second Round of the FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Pre-Qualifiers.

Eight teams – the bottom side from each group in the First Round of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers – will join four teams – the three group winners and the best second-placed team – from the FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Pre-Qualifier First Round.

The winning team of each of the four groups will then move directly into the FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Qualifiers which start in autumn 2019. The losing teams meanwhile, will enter the Third Round of the Pre-Qualifiers in August 2019, where they will be joined by the five teams that were knocked out in the First Round of the Pre-Qualifiers, as they seek a second chance to make the Qualifiers.
