Qatar, which hosted the International Football Federation FIFA World Cup last year, will also host the 2027 International Basketball Federation FIBA Men’s World Cup.
FIBA announced on the 29th (Korean time), “The 2027 Men’s World Cup will be held in Qatar, and the 2026 Women’s World Cup will be held in Germany.”
The FIBA World Cup is held every four years for both men and women. The women’s tournament was held in Australia last year, and the men’s World Cup is scheduled to be co-hosted by Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia this year.
The Men’s Basketball World Cup will be held in Asia for the third time in a row, following China in 2019 and Japan-Philippines-Indonesia this year.
Like last year’s soccer World Cup, the Men’s Basketball World Cup features 32 countries.
The number of participating countries will increase to 48 from the 2026 competition.
Qatar got the right to host the 2027 Basketball World Cup, although controversies arose around the hosting of the soccer World Cup last year due to issues such as sexual minorities and foreign workers’ human rights.
Qatar also hosted the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in January 2024 and hosted the 2030 Summer Asian Games. 토스카지노
The Associated Press reported that “Qatar is also expected to host the 2036 Summer Olympics.”
In the case of the Summer Olympics, Paris, France in 2024, Los Angeles, USA in 2028, and Brisbane, Australia in 2032 have been selected.
