  • Basketball World Cup to be hosted by 3 Asian nations in 2023

Andanar said the Philippine hosting of Fiba World Cup is expected to spur tourism even further and provide added stimulus for businesses as well as investments.

Indonesia's success to be the host of FIBA World Cup 2023 marked two important developments, namely, it will be the first time that Indonesia will hold the world's highest basketball competition and that the championship would be the first, which will be organized jointly since 1950.

The communications chief then praised Samahang Basketball ng Pilipinas chair emeritus Manny Pangilinan for securing the hosting.

In winning the bid, the Philippines, Indonesia and Japan earned outright slots to the 2023 World Cup, which is also a qualifying tournament for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. "We are looking forward to #PlayLouderin2023", Andanar said.

The United States will defend its title at the 2019 World Cup in China.

The 2023 World Cup is slated for Manila, Okinawa, and Jakarta, with the group stages to be played in five venues.

Andanar cited that the Philippines last hosted FIBA in 1978.

Indonesia, the Philippines, and Japan defeated Argentina and Uruguay, which had also competed to co-host the championship, according to an official statement received here.

However, the biggest victor here is the Philippines, the lead nation in the co-hosting bid, which finally got the hosting right after losing its solo hosting bid for the 2019 edition to China.
