The 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup qualification (Americas) process will determine the 7 Americas teams that will participate at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup. It will be held from November 2017 to February 2019.

Seeding[edit]

The top five teams at the 2016 Centrobasket and 2016 South American Basketball Championship, plus the two teams from North America, qualified directly to the 2019 FIBA World Cup qualification. Four additional teams were scheduled to be selected at a pre-qualifier tournament in July 2017, but it was canceled. Instead, the sixth and seventh placed teams at the Centrobasket and South American Championship were invited to the World Cup qualification.[1]
