How to qualify

The 10 nations taking part in the FIBA EuroBasket 2025 Pre-Qualifiers First Round were drawn into three groups, with each team playing the others in its group in home and away games in a round-robin system.

The First Round of the Pre-Qualifiers will take place in three windows on November 25-28, 2021, February 24-27, 2022, and June 30-July 3, 2022.

Four teams – the three group winners and the best-ranked second-placed team – will qualify for the FIBA EuroBasket 2025 Pre-Qualifiers Second Round and will be joined by a total of eight teams placed fourth in each group from FIBA Basketball
World Cup 2023 European Qualifiers and will play the Second Round in three windows in August 2022, November 2022, and February 2023.

To determine the standings within a group, all games will be taken into account.

To determine the best ranked second-placed team out of the three groups, the results against fourth-placed teams in the groups of four teams will be disregarded to compare the teams on a like-for-like basis as per the Official Basketball Rules.
