Calling all hoop fanatics, it's time to don your jersey and lace up those kicks!

The Fédération Internationale de Basketball (FIBA) and Singapore have embarked on a three-year partnership to host the FIBA Intercontinental Cup. Mark your calendars to catch world-class action right here at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, which will be the first ever venue in Asia to host the event from 21 – 24 September 2023.   

Basketball enthusiasts in Singapore will now be able to witness the 33rd edition of this epic tournament, which has been expanded from four to six teams. 

Three teams are the winners of their respective Basketball Champions Leagues, namely Telekom Baskets Bonn (Basketball Champions League), Sesi Franca (Basketball Champions League Americas) and Al Ahly (Basketball Africa League). NBA G-League Ignite was the first to be announced as they were pre-selected to represent the NBA G League. A Chinese club, Zhejiang Golden Bulls, jointly selected by FIBA and the Chinese Basketball Association, will join Al Manama (WASL champion) to make up the six official teams. 

The first three days of the competition will feature a round-robin format between the two groups. Sesi Franca, Ignite and Al Ahly sit in Group A, while Zhejiang, Al Manama and Bonn are part of Group B. The climax of the tournament, scheduled for 24 September, will be a showdown between the leading teams from each group as they vie for the championship. Preceding this, there will be an earlier match on the same day to determine the rankings for 3rd and 5th place.

Secure your front-row seat to witness slam dunks, three-pointers and heart-pounding action from world-class athletes. Stand a chance to get up close with your favourite players by getting a behind-the-scenes experience witnessing their pre-game routines or visiting their locker rooms!
