Watch the FIBA Basketball World Cup live
The 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup is the 19th tournament of the FIBA Basketball World Cup for men's national basketball teams. The tournament is the second to feature 32 teams and is currently being hosted by multiple nations for the first time in its history—the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia—from 25 August to 10 September 2023.
It is the first World Cup to be hosted in Indonesia, and the second to be hosted in both the Philippines and Japan with both having first hosted the tournament in 1978 and 2006, respectively. The tournament is also the second of three-straight World Cups to be held in Asia after China's hosting of the 2019 edition and Qatar's upcoming hosting of the 2027 tournament, and the first time in tournament history that a host nation has not qualified. The tournament also set a record for the most-attended World Cup game in history, with 38,115 spectators attending the Dominican Republic vs. Philippines game at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, breaking the previous one of 32,616 set during the 1994 final at the SkyDome in Toronto.
The tournament serves as qualification for the 2024 Summer Olympics, where the top two teams from each of the Americas and Europe, and the top team from each of Africa, Asia and Oceania, will qualify alongside the tournament's host France.
Spain are the defending champions, having beaten Argentina in the 2019 final.
