/ 10:09 PM June 01, 2017

Failing to claim the hosting rights for the 2019 event, the Philippines will make another bid anew, this time, joining forces with Japan and Indonesia for the 2023 Fiba World Cup.

Fiba released a shortlist of candidates for the 2023 tilt on Thursday, unveiling the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) forming a united front with the Japan Basketball Association (JBA) and the Indonesian Basketball Association (PERBASI).

European nations Russia and Turkey have also submitted single-host bids, while South American nations Argentina and Uruguay are submitting a joint-hosting application.

Bidding for the 2023 Fiba World Cup is still open until the end of August, the deadline for the submission of the Candidature Files.

The Fiba Central Board will then meet each candidate’s parties and stakeholders in the coming months before deliberating on to which applicant the hosting rights will be awarded to.

China will host the 2019 Fiba World Cup across eight cities, where 32 nations will fight for the Naismith trophy in the culmination of the new Fiba competition format.
