FIBA Women's AmeriCup 2023 logo unveiled

MIAMI (United States) – The official logo of the FIBA Women's AmeriCup 2023, to be played in Mexico from July 1-9, has been unveiled.

The FIBA regional office in the Americas in collaboration with the Mexican Basketball Federation presented the event logo that represents the culture and elements that characterize León de los Aldama, the host city in the Mexican state of Guanajuato.

The logo features a lioness specifically positioned in the middle of the design, which was inspired by the famous landmark, Arco Triunfal de la Calzada de los Héroes. Surrounding the lioness, you’ll find emblematic colors that fill a Molten shaped ball. The logo and colors also help distinguish the growth and importance of the women’s game across the region.

The event will be played at the legendary Domo de la Feria and will mark the return of the continental competition to Mexico after a 10-year absence. The 2013 edition was played in Xalapa, Veracruz. In that edition of the event, Cuba defeated Canada, 79-71, to take home the gold medal.

"Women's in basketball is a key strategic priority for us and FIBA is honored and grateful to México and the municipality of Leon for hosting this epic event. In collaboration with the Mexican National Federation (Ademeba) we will deliver a world level event in Mexico this summer. I'm beyond excited to see the top-level athletes and coaches who will come and elevate our game during the FIBA Women's AmeriCup 2023," said FIBA Americas Executive Director Carlos Alves.

The ten teams participating in this year's edition will include: Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the host nation Mexico are the four teams who qualified through the Centrobasket Women's Championships. The top four teams who qualified from the South American Women's Championship are Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela. Canada and USA, the current 2-time defending champions, will complete the 10 teams and be part of the field for this event.

The draw for the FIBA Women’s AmeriCup 2023 is scheduled for May 10th in Miami, Florida where two groups of five teams will be drawn to set the field for the event.
