FIBA WASL Final 8 2024 groups confirmed

BEIRUT (Lebanon) - Groups for the FIBA West Asia Super League (FIBA WASL) Final 8 2024 have been confirmed through an online draw conducted on Monday, May 13.

A video conference attended by representatives from the host, the Qatari Basketball Federation, as well as envoys from BC Astana and Tamil Nadu, was held to determine the groups of the two teams.

The draw results are as follows:

Group A - Al Riyadi, Manama, Sagesse, BC Astana
Group B - Kuwait Club, Shahrdary Gorgan, Kazma, Tamil Nadu

Six teams from the FIBA WASL Sub-Zone Leagues make up the Final 8.

Reigning two-time Gulf League champions Kuwait Club spearhead the sub-zone's delegation together with Manama, as well as third-placers Kazma.

Manama are the defending FIBA WASL kings, winning the league's inaugural competition by outlasting Kuwait Club in the Final held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The West Asia ensemble, on the other hand, features back-to-back sub-zone champions Al Riyadi, Shahrdary Gorgan, and Sagesse Sports Club.

All six will be joined by BC Astana and Tamil Nadu, representatives of Central and South Asia, respectively.

Following the single round-robin group stage, the top two teams from each group will progress to the Semi-Finals, while the third and fourth-placed teams will be eliminated from contention.

The Semis victors will then compete for the ultimate prize in the one-game Final.

The two finalists will earn spots in the inaugural Basketball Champions League Asia (BCL Asia) which will be played from June 9-15, 2024 in Dubai.

The 2024 FIBA WASL Final 8 will be held in Doha, Qatar from May 25-June 1.
