2023 FIBA World Cup

Tickets for Gilas World Cup games to be available starting March 1

For the first time since 1978, the Philippines will be a proud host of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023. And Filipino basketball fans will get first dibs to secure their passes for the games of Gilas Pilipinas Men.

Beginning March 1, 2022, limited passes will be available to fans with early bird pricing.

Only 1,100 team passes will be sold online through FIBA’s official website from March 1 to 31.

FOLLOW MY TEAM PASS-PHILIPPINES will be composed of the five Gilas games in the group or elimination phase of the World Cup.

With the world’s best basketball players taking part in the biggest hoops stage, including the most dominant players in the National Basketball Association (NBA), the Euroleague, and all the professional basketball leagues across Asia, fans can take advantage of the early bird pricing as ticket prices are expected to increase approaching the tournament itself.

“The journey for the FIBA World Cup 2023 in Manila starts now,” said Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) president and FIBA Asia vice president Al Panlilio. “Be the first to support your Gilas team by purchasing the Follow My Team Pass-Philippines. Together, let’s win for all!”

The SBP also added that the SMART-Araneta Coliseum, the SM Mall of Asia Arena, and the Philippine Arena will serve as venues for the Philippine hosting of the event.

The SMART-Araneta Coliseum is considered the mecca of Philippine sports after the World Basketball Championship was held there in 1978 — the first time the country hosted the prestigious tournament.

The SM Mall of Asia Arena, meanwhile, hosted the Philippines’ staging of the 2013 FIBA Asia Cup and the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in 2016 while the Philippine Arena served as a venue for Gilas’ July 2019 window in the World Cup Qualifiers as well as the 2018 FIBA 3×3 World Cup.

The Philippines and co-host Japan have already secured berths in the tournament. Third host Indonesia can claim a spot through the 2022 FIBA Asia Cup or the Asian Qualifiers.
