2021 FIBA Asia Cup

Dates all set for FIBA Asia Cup

The FIBA Asia Cup 2022 is all set.

On Friday, the governing body announced that the highly-anticipated continental meet will take place from July 12-24, 2022 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The tournament was originally scheduled for August 2021, but the surge of coronavirus cases in the said country led to its postponement.

Jordan previously offered to host the showpiece at a time FIBA was mulling to push it back. Those plans, though, did not materialize.

Sixteen teams will see action, led by host Indonesia and reigning titlists Australia, who’s coming off a bronze medal finish in the Tokyo Olympics.

Then there are also Gilas Pilipinas, Bahrain, China, Iran, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Lebanon, New Zealand, and Syria.

Completing the cast are Chinese Taipei, India, and Saudi Arabia – all of which qualified through the Qualifiers for third-ranked teams last August.

The draw will be on December 8, 2021.

The 2022 Asia Cup will take place about a month after the third window of the recently-opened 2023 World Cup Qualifiers.
