After the Football World Cup, Qatar will host the 2027 Men’s Basketball World Cup

All matches of the event will be played in the capital city of Doha, making Qatar the first Arab country in the Middle East to host a men’s basketball event.

Qatar has been selected as the host of the 2027 Men’s Basketball World Cup, marking the first time that the country will host the prestigious event. Qatar has become known for hosting major global sporting events, with the Gulf nation recently hosting the men’s FIFA World Cup in November-December last year.
The decision to award the 2027 Basketball World Cup to Qatar is a testament to the country’s growing reputation as a hub for major sporting events. The announcement was made by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), which selected Qatar to host the tournament after a successful bid. Along with this, Qatar is going to host the event for the first time. It has been reported that these matches will be held in the existing basketball stadium in the capital Doha.

The women’s version of the tournament will be held in Germany in 2026, further emphasizing the sport’s global reach and popularity. It should also be noted that the 2023 Men’s Basketball World Cup is scheduled to be held from August 25 to September 10 in the Philippines, Indonesia and Japan. Qatar failed to make it to the 32 teams participating in this year’s tournament. The selection of Qatar as the host of the 2027 Men’s Basketball World Cup after the FIFA World Cup 2022 is scheduled to take place will create excitement among basketball fans around the world. The country’s modern infrastructure, combined with its experience in hosting major sporting events, makes it an ideal venue for the tournament.
