The EuroBasket 2021 will be the 41st edition of the EuroBasket championships organized by FIBA Europe, and will be held between 17 August and 3 September 2021. The first since it was agreed to take place every four years, with a similar system of qualification as for the FIBA Basketball World Cup.[1]

Like the previous editions, the tournament will be co-hosted by four countries. Games in the group stage will be held in Germany, Czech Republic, Georgia and Italy. The knock-out phase will be played in Berlin, Germany.

Hosts selection[edit]

For EuroBasket 2015 and 2017, FIBA Europe opened three bidding options for hosting: to host a preliminary group, to host the final round, or to host the entire tournament. In the end, each of these two tournaments was hosted in four cities in four countries. It will be hosted by four nations for the third time.

These are the official candidate countries to host Eurobasket 2021:[2][3]

Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany and Italy we selected as host countries on 15 July 2019 at the Central Board in Munich, Germany.

Format[edit]

A number of 24 qualified are expected to play the main round.

Qualification[edit]

The qualification started in November 2017, with nine teams participating in the pre-qualifiers, including the five eliminated teams from the 2019 World Cup European Pre-Qualifiers. The co-hosts (Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany and Italy) will qualify directly to the EuroBasket 2021. While the 20 remaining spot will be determined.
