The hosts of the tournaments for the upcoming November 2020 windows of the FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Qualifiers, as well as the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Pre-Qualifiers have been confirmed.
The locations approved by the Board are as follows:
FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Qualifiers (November 23 – December 1, 2020)
FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Pre-Qualifiers (November 23-29, 2020)
The most important criteria in choosing the hosts was health and travel guarantees and compliance with FIBA health protocols, including testing and controlled entry into a secure environment.
Preference was given to candidacies from nations that are scheduled to play two home games in the November window.
The exact schedule of games will be confirmed later this month.
The decision about the hosts of the February bubbles will at latest be taken by the Board in December.
The decision to play both windows in bubbles, instead of home and away games, was confirmed by the FIBA Executive Committee in September after taking into consideration the health and safety of players, coaches, and officials, and following a recommendation from the Medical and Competitions Commissions.
