The FIBA Women’s Asia Cup 2023 is the region’s flagship women’s national team competition and for the first-time ever will take place in Australia. The Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre will be the home for the event from 26 June to 2 July, and will see the best players from across the region compete on Australian soil.
The Women’s Asia Cup in Sydney comes a year after Australia successfully hosted the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in 2022, which drew record crowds in attendance, broadcast, and digital. Basketball fans will have the chance to witness a potential rematch between Australia and China, who faced off in the Women’s World Cup Semi-Finals matchup that drew nearly 12,000 fans to the Sydney Superdome.
