The FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship, previously known as the European Championship for Men '22 and Under', is a basketball competition inaugurated in 1992. Until 2004, it was held biannually, but since 2004 it is held every year. The tournament was originally an Under-22 age tournament, but it is now an Under-20 age tournament. The current champions are Greece.

Since 2005, a Division B tournament, the second level of the European Under-20 Basketball Championship, is also organized. Since 2013, the top three placed teams at each year's Division B tournament are promoted to the next year's Division A Championship. This way, the three bottom teams of the Division A Championship are relegated to the next year's Division B Championship.

Division A[edit]

The Division A is the top level of the Under-20 championship organized by FIBA Europe.

These teams have always played in Division A, and have never been relegated to Division B:
