Qatar to host FIBA on 2027

Its first ever FIBA world cup

FIBA

Following the success of the World Cup, Qatar is establishing a reputation as a major sports hub, and basketball is the latest sport to relocate to Doha.

The FIBA World Cup 2027 will be held in the entire city and will be hosted by the Qatar Basketball Federation (QBF).

Since the already-built venues are only 30 minutes apart, fans will be able to watch multiple games on the same day, similar to the World Cup.

As the first FIBA flagship event to be held in this region of the world, it will introduce basketball to millions of people in the Middle East and contribute to the sport’s rising popularity.

The country’s connectivity, both domestically and internationally, is what sealed the deal for Qatar, according to FIBA, the sport’s international governing body.

Qatar has demonstrated its ability to offer guests excellent services with its direct flights to the majority of the potential participating countries, its cutting-edge infrastructure facilities, and its easily accessible public transportation network.
When the action gets underway in Qatar, FIBA President Hamane Niang said, “While we are all anticipating what we are sure will be another outstanding FIBA event, we will also enjoy the entire journey to Doha.

“The qualification path to the World Cup has been a great success since its introduction in 2017, and we will be ready once again to follow all the action.”

The Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia will co-host the 2018 FIBA World Cup, which will take place from Friday, August 25, to Sunday, September 10. Spain won the 2019 competition, which featured 32 teams and was held in China.
