The FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021 Draw took place at the Santiago Grisolia Auditorium in the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain on March 8, 2021.
Seeded based on their performances at the FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2019 and the FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2021 Qualifiers in equal parts, the 16-participating teams were drawn into four groups of four teams each.
Former national team players Anna Montanana and Cathy Melain assisted with the drawing of the groups, representing the two co-hosts, while Spain legend Amaya Valdemoro was one of the presenters.
France and Spain had the right to choose a partner Federation to play in their respective country, with France selecting Belgium and Spain choosing Slovakia.
Belgium were drawn to a different group than France in Strasbourg by default as both countries shared the same seed. Meanwhile, Slovakia was automatically drawn to the same group as Spain in Valencia.
The groups are as follows:
Teams drawn to Groups A and B will play in Valencia, Spain, with Group C and D action, including Qualification for the Quarter-Finals and the respective Quarter-Finals, taking place in Strasbourg, France.
The competition will conclude in Valencia with the Final Phase.
