The FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 in China will be the biggest edition of FIBA’s flagship event with a record 32 participating teams. The event will see 92 games played over 16 days

The first pool games will take place on Saturday 31st August 31st, with the final to take place in Beijing on Sunday 15th September, 2019.

For the first time, the FIBA Basketball World Cup will qualify 7 teams directly for the following year’s Olympic Games. As such, the top ranked team from Africa, Asia and Oceania respectively and the top 2 ranked teams each from the Americas and Europe at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 will all qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Games.

OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS TOUR

We will be providing the Boomers Official Supporters Tour for the World Cup. Once the draw is confirmed and we know which cities that we will playing in, full details and pricing will be released. One of the key issues for the tour is not knowing where we may be playing the 2nd round games, so our experience in having run a travel business in China previously and access to local guides and services will make this a seamless transition to the cities we need to get to.
