The International Basketball Federation (FIBA), during its meeting which was held Friday in Manila of Philippines, announced that the State of Qatar has been awarded the hosting rights for the 2027 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

The FIBA's Central Board had announced its decision after evaluating the files submitted by the candidate countries, as the State of Qatar was the most prominent choice to host the 2027 edition of the tournament, which will be held for the first time in the Middle East and North Africa region.

FIBA's Central Board enumerated the reasons that prompted it to favor the Qatari file, including, but not limited to, those exceptional facilities owned by the State of Qatar, its great keenness to develop sports in general and basketball in particular, in addition to the huge balance that the State of Qatar possesses in hosting major sports tournaments.

The Qatari file attaches special importance to the legacy plans in order to emphasize the tournament's contribution to the development of basketball in the region and the world. And in light of the readiness of the sports facilities that will host the 2027 Basketball World Cup, this version of the tournament will become the most sustainable version in its history.
