FIBA holds workshop on hosting FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023

MIES, Switzerland (FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023) - Eleven National Federations are participating in a workshop on the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 and its bidding process.

The national basketball governing bodies of Argentina, Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Serbia and Turkey are attending an informative workshop at the House of Basketball. Over the course of two days (Tuesday-Wednesday 1-2 November), FIBA is presenting the rights and requirements tied into bidding - and eventually hosting - the competition.

Following the decision of the FIBA Central Board on 11-12 March 2016, and the successful staging of EuroBasket 2015 in five cities across four countries, a multiple hosting option is being made available for the first time for the FIBA Basketball World Cup. Any National Federation can host the event single-handedly or become part of a multiple host bid.

The next step in the process for a National Federation will consist of submitting a bid application questionnaire in early 2017.

FIBA's Central Board will announce the host(s) of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 at its end-of-year meeting in 2017.
