PH, Japan, Indonesia to host 2023 FIBA World Cup

Indonesia's success to be the host of FIBA World Cup 2023 marked two important developments, namely, it will be the first time that Indonesia will hold the world's highest basketball competition and that the championship would be the first, which will be organized jointly since 1950.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas chairman emeritus Manny V. Pangilinan led the 20-minute presentation and speakers for the three-nation consortium.

To make the FIBA World Cup 2024 be focused with regard to sports, the athletes tournament will be carried out in five arenas in three cities, which are Jakarta (Indonesia), Manila (the Philippines), and Okinawa (Japan), while venues must also be close to accommodation, media, medical, and other important services.

The 2023 FIBA World Cup will be hosted by the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia.

It was also played in Japan in 2006, while Indonesia will host it for the first time. Then, the knockout stage beginning the quarterfinals will all be staged in the Philippines.

Let's get louder in 2023. Those are just some of the pictures that capture how, as the SBP team pitched it for Fiba, basketball is more than a game in the Philippines, it's a way of life.
