Qualification for Olympic Games


As of 2020, qualification for the Olympic Games is through the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Universality remains in place for the qualifying process for the Olympic Games, thereby ensuring that each continent is represented.

The FIBA Basketball World Cup will produce seven directly qualified teams for the Olympic Games, with hosts* receiving automatic qualification to the event.

The four remaining places in the 12-team Olympic field are reserved for the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments, with the format of these tournaments to be confirmed shortly. The next Olympic Games will take place in Paris in 2024 from July 26 to August 11.
