SBP said that Smart Araneta Coliseum, Mall of Asia Arena, and Philippine Arena will serve as venues for the Fiba World Cup as the Philippines share hosting duties with Indonesia and Japan.

MOA Arena became home of the 2013 Fiba Asia Championship and the 2016 Olympic Qualifying Tournament while Philippine Arena was the venue of the 2019 Fiba Basketball World Cup qualifiers as well as the Fiba 3×3 Basketball World Cup.
