History

World map depicting the number of times a country has hosted the World Cup. Dark blue: twice; light blue: once.

The FIBA Basketball World Cup was conceived at a meeting of the FIBA World Congress at the 1948 Summer Olympics in London. Long-time FIBA Secretary-General Renato William Jones urged FIBA to adopt a World Championship, similar to the FIFA World Cup, to be held in every four years between Olympiads. The FIBA Congress, seeing how successful the 23-team Olympic tournament was that year, agreed to the proposal, beginning with a tournament in . Argentina was selected as host, largely because it was the only country willing to take on the task. Argentina took advantage of the host selection, winning all their games en route to becoming the first FIBA World Champion.

The first five tournaments were held in South America, and teams from the Americas dominated the tournament, winning eight of nine medals at the first three tournaments. By , however, teams from Eastern Europe (the Soviet Union) and Southeast Europe (Yugoslavia), in particular – began to catch up to the teams from the American continents. Between 1963 and 1990, the tournament was dominated by the United States, the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, and Brazil who together accounted for every medal at the tournament.

The 1994 FIBA World Championship held in Toronto marked the beginning of a new era, as currently active American NBA players participated in the tournament for the first time (prior to that only European and South American professionals were allowed to participate as they were still classified as amateurs), while the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia split into many new states. The United States dominated that year and won gold, while the former states of the USSR and Yugoslavia, Russia and Croatia, won silver and bronze. The 1998 FIBA World Championship, held in Greece (Athens and Piraeus), lost some of its luster when the 1998–99 NBA lockout prevented NBA players from participating. The new Yugoslavian team, now consisting of the former Yugoslav republics of Serbia and Montenegro, won the gold medal over Russia, while the USA, with professional basketball players playing in Europe and two college players, finished third.

In , other nations eventually caught up to the four powerhouse countries and their successor states. FR Yugoslavia, led by Peja Stojaković of the Sacramento Kings and Dejan Bodiroga of FC Barcelona won the final game against Argentina, while Dirk Nowitzki, who was the tournament’s MVP, led Germany to the bronze, its first ever World Championship medal. Meanwhile, the United States team, this time made up of NBA players, struggled to a sixth-place finish. This new era of parity convinced FIBA to expand the tournament to 24 teams for the 2006, , and editions of the tournament.

In , emerging powerhouse Spain beat Greece in the first appearance in the final for both teams. Spain became only the seventh team (Yugoslavia and FR Yugoslavia are counted separately in the FIBA records) to capture a World Championship gold. The USA, who lost to Greece in a semifinal, won against Argentina in the third place match and claimed bronze.

In the 2010 FIBA World Championship final, the USA defeated Turkey and won gold for the first time in 16 years, while Lithuania beat Serbia and won bronze. The United States became the third country to defend the championship, winning against Serbia at the 2014 edition of the tournament. France beat Lithuania in the bronze medal game.

After the 2014 edition, FIBA instituted significant changes to the World Cup. The final competition was expanded from 24 to 32 teams. Also, for the first time since 1967, the competition would no longer overlap with the FIFA World Cup. To accommodate this change, the 2014 FIBA World Cup will be followed by a 2019 edition in China, then followed by a 2023 edition in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia.

Qualification

World map depicting the number of times a national team participated in the World Cup.

The Basketball World Cup has used various forms of qualification throughout its history. The first five tournaments were held in South America and participation was dominated by teams from the Americas. At the first tournament, FIBA intended for the three Olympic medalists to compete, plus the host Argentina and two teams each from Europe, Asia, and South America. However, no Asian team was willing to travel to the event, so six of the ten teams were from the Americas (all three Olympic medalists were from the Americas, plus the zone received two continental berths and an Asia’s berth). The former European powerhouse Soviet Union, later made their first tournament appearance in , after missing the first two events.

In the tournament’s early years, only Europe and South America had established continental tournaments, so participation in the tournament was largely by invitation. Later, Asia added a continental championship in 1960, followed by Africa in 1962, Central America in 1965, and Oceania in 1971, As a result of these changes, qualification became more formalized starting with the 1967 tournament. In that year, the Asian champion received an automatic berth in the tournament, joining the top European and South American teams. In , the African and Oceanian champion each received a berth, while the Centrobasket champion and runner-up were each invited. For most of these years, the tournament host, defending World Champion, and top Olympic basketball tournament finishers also qualified for the event.

From 1970 through the 2014 World Cup, qualification continued to be based on the continental competitions and the Olympic tournament. The only major change came in the 1990 FIBA World Championship, when the tournament started taking qualifiers from the newly redesigned FIBA Americas Championship rather than from North, Central, and South America individually. After the tournament expanded to 24 teams in , the tournament allocated qualification as follows:

  • FIBA EuroBasket (Europe) – 6 berths
  • FIBA AfroBasket (Africa) – 3 berths
  • FIBA Asia Cup (Asia)  – 3 berths
  • FIBA AmeriCup (Americas) – 5 berths
  • FIBA Oceania Championship (Oceania) – 2 berths
  • Defending Olympic Champion – 1 berth, removed from the zone of the Olympic champion
  • Host team – 1 berth
  • FIBA-selected wild cards – 4 berths

Each of the five continental championships also served as qualification for the Olympics, so all were held every two years. The year immediately preceding the World Championship was used to determine the berths at the tournament. For example, all of the berths at the 2010 FIBA World Championship were determined by continental championships held in . After the first 20 teams qualified, FIBA then selected four wild card teams, based on sporting, economic, and governance criteria, as well as a required registration fee from each team to be considered by the FIBA board. Of the four wild cards, only three could come from one continental zone. In each of the two tournaments that the wild card system was in place, FIBA selected the maximum three European teams to compete in the event.

FIBA instituted major changes to its competition calendar and the qualifying process for both the World Cup and Olympics in 2017.

First, the continental championships are now held once every four years, specifically in years that immediately follow the Summer Olympics. The continental championships no longer play a role in qualifying for either the World Cup or Olympics.

The 2019 World Cup qualifying process, which began in 2017, is the first under a new format. Qualifying takes place over a two-year cycle, involving six windows of play. Qualifying zones mirror the FIBA continental zones, except that FIBA Asia and FIBA Oceania are now combined into a single Asia-Pacific qualifying zone. In each qualifying zone, nations are divided into Division A and Division B, with promotion and relegation between the two. FIBA did not initially reveal full details of the new process, but announced that at least in opening phases, it would feature groups of three or four teams, playing home-and-away within the group. Below is the list of distribution of berths according to each FIBA qualifying zone.

  • FIBA Europe – 12 berths
  • FIBA Americas – 7 berths
  • FIBA Africa – 5 berths
  • Asia-Pacific (FIBA Asia and FIBA Oceania) – 7 berths
  • Host team – 1 berth / 3 berths in

Tournament format

The Basketball World Cup has existed in several different formats throughout the years, as it has expanded and contracted between 10 and 24 teams. The first tournament, in , began with a ten-team double-elimination tournament, followed by a six-team round robin round to determine the champion. Between 1954 and 1974, each tournament started with a group stage preliminary round; the top teams in each preliminary round group then moved on to a final round robin group to determine the champion. In , FIBA added a gold medal game between the top two finishers in the final group and a bronze medal game between the third and fourth place teams. In each year between 1959 and 1982, the host team received a bye into the final group. Of the seven host teams in this era, only three won medals, despite the head start. As a result, FIBA made the host team compete in the preliminary round starting in .

In 1986, the tournament briefly expanded to 24 teams. Four groups of six teams each competed in the preliminary round group stage. The top three teams in each group then competed in the second group stage, followed by a four-team knockout tournament between the top two finishers in each group. The championship contracted back down to 16 teams for the 1990 tournament. The three tournaments between 1990 and 1998, each had two group stages followed by a four-team knockout tournament to determine the medalists. The 2002 tournament expanded the knockout round to eight teams.

In , FIBA made the decision to expand back to 24 teams and introduced the format that was in place through . Under that format, the teams were divided into four preliminary round groups of six teams each.

In , the final tournament will expand to 32 teams.
If the teams should be tied at the end of the preliminary round, the ties are broken by the following criteria in order:

  1. Game results between tied teams
  2. Goal average between games of the tied teams
  3. Goal average for all games of the tied teams
  4. Drawing of lots

The top two teams in each group then advance to a sixteen-team single-elimination knockout round. It begins with the eighth finals, where the top teams in each group play the fourth-placed teams in another group and the second and third-placed teams in each group face off. This is followed by the quarterfinals, semifinals, and final. The semifinal losers play in the bronze medal game, while the quarterfinal losers play in a consolation bracket to determine fifth through eighth places.

Формат турнира

Квалификация

До сезона 2010/11 включительно в квалификационном раунде разыгрывались 2 путёвки в групповой турнир в 2-3 раундах квалификации среди 16 клубов.

С сезона 2011/2012 Евролига изменила формат квалификации — 1 место разыгрывалось с участием 8 клубов по олимпийской системе.

Начиная с сезона 2015/16 квалификация была заменена на систему долгосрочных лицензий, основываясь на и других правилах (чемпионство в национальных турнирах, победитель Еврокубка и обладатель уайлд-кард).

Регулярный сезон

Следующим этапом розыгрыша Евролиги является регулярный сезон. До сезона 2015/16 в нём участвовало 24 команды, которые были поделены на четыре группы по шесть команд, которые играют между собой по круговой системе. Из каждой группы в следующую стадию турнира (Топ-16) выходили по четыре клуба. Матчи проводились по четвергам и пятницам.

Начиная с сезона 2016/17 количество команд в групповом турнире было сокращено до 16, и все они играли в одной группе между собой по круговой системе, и в четвертьфинал выходят 8 лучших команд.

Топ-16

До сезона сезона 2011/12 включительно раунд Топ-16 игрался в четырёх группах по четыре команды. Начиная с сезона 2012/13 формат Топ-16 был изменён на две группы по восемь команд, которые играли в круговую: две игры с каждым соперником по системе дома и на выезде. Жеребьевка Топ-16 не проводилась, и команды распределялись следующим образом:

  • Группа E: A1, B2, C3, D4, C1, D2, A3, B4
  • Группа F: B1, C2, D3, A4, D1, A2, B3, C4

Две лучших команды из каждой группы по итогам раунда получают право продолжить турнир в четвертьфинале.

Начиная с сезона 2016/17 этап Топ-16 упразднён.

Четвертьфинал

До сезона 2016/17 команды сразу после Топ-16 попадали в четвертьфинал. На этом этапе команды играют серию матчей до трёх побед, преимущество площадки получает коллектив занявший высшее место на предыдущем этапе. Победители пар выходят в «Финал четырёх».

Финал четырёх

Финал четырёх проводится по олимпийский системе в заранее определённом городе в течение двух дней. Впервые Евролига использовала формат Финала четырёх в сезоне 1987/88. Греческий клуб «Панатинаикос» является самым успешным клубом финального турнира, выиграв его шесть раз. В первый день проводятся полуфиналы, через день проходят матч за 3-е место и финал.

История

Первый розыгрыш Кубка европейских чемпионов состоялся в 1958 году, первым обладателем трофея стал баскетбольный клуб СКА (Рига). Самый титулованный клуб Европы — «Реал Мадрид», он завоёвывал Кубок 10 раз. По количеству титулов среди стран первенство за Италией и Испанией — их клубы становились обладателем кубка по 13 раз. В финале Евролиги чаще всего играл «Реал» — 18 раз.

Команды СССР тоже добивались в кубке европейских чемпионов успехов, 8 раз выигрывая этот турнир (рижский СКА в 1958—1960; ЦСКА в 1961, 1963, 1969 и 1971; тбилисское «Динамо» в 1962) и 6 раз становясь его финалистами (тбилисское «Динамо» в 1960; рижский СКА в 1961 (в 1960 и в 1961 годах финал вообще был чисто советским); ЦСКА в 1965, 1970 и 1973; каунасский «Жальгирис» в 1986). Советские команды ещё несколько раз играли в кубке европейских чемпионов. В 1966 году ЦСКА в полуфинале уступил миланской «Олимпии», но в матче за 3-е место обыграл греческий АЕК; в 1977, 1981, 1983 и 1985 годах тот же ЦСКА, а в 1987 «Жальгирис» не смогли добиться права играть в финале.

До лета 2000 года турнир проводился под эгидой ФИБА и назывался Кубок европейских чемпионов. В результате финансового конфликта в сезоне 2000/2001 стартовали 2 независимых соревнования — Супролига ФИБА и Евролига УЛЕБ. В дальнейшем конфликт не утихал. ФИБА несколько раз меняла названия проводимых под своей эгидой турниров (Евролига ФИБА, Кубок Европы и т. д.). Евролига же УЛЕБ оставалась неизменной, более престижной и коммерчески успешной. С сезона 2008/09 ФИБА и УЛЕБ пришли к соглашению. Теперь основной турнир как и раньше именуется Евролига. Второй по рангу турнир (бывший Кубок УЛЕБ) — Еврокубок (Eurocup). Третий (бывший Евролига ФИБА) — Кубок Вызова (EuroChallenge).

Tournament growth

The 2010 FIBA World Championship reached a global TV audience of 800 million people, across 171 countries, with the official website having 30 million views during the tournament.[citation needed] Both numbers broke the previous records set at the 2006 FIBA World Championship and at the EuroBasket 2009.[citation needed] Three of the games involving Lithuania were among the highest rated programs in that country. In China, 65 million watched the Chinese national team’s game against Greece, in the preliminary round. This was an improvement from the 2006 FIBA World Championship, which was held in Japan, and was shown in 150 countries. This meant that games aired in the morning in Europe and at night in the Americas; despite this, audiences broke records, with Italy’s game against Slovenia achieving a 20% viewing share in Italy, Serbia’s game against Nigeria netting a 33% share in Serbia, and a 600,000-audience in the United States for the US national team’s game against Puerto Rico at 1 a.m.

Before the 2010 FIBA World Championship started in Turkey, FIBA had already sold 350,000 tickets, for a revenue of between US$8 to 10 million. The number of tickets sold was 10% higher than 2006, although the revenue was less than 2006’s US$18 million, which was widely attributed to the strong Japanese yen. Meanwhile, FIBA got two-thirds of marketing rights revenue, of which one-third, or about US$8 million, went to the local organizers. FIBA had also successfully negotiated TV rights deals, which all went to FIBA, worth US$25 million, including a TV rights deal with ESPN. In 2006, the Japanese organizers were targeting to sell 180,000 tickets, mostly to a Japanese audience; as for the overseas audience, the Japanese organizers didn’t “expect them in great numbers”. This was seen as a big improvement from the 2002 tournament, which was a financial loss for USA Basketball and Indianapolis, in which all games were held in one city. This led to the Japanese organizers to hold games throughout the country, instead of just in a single city.

At the most recent world championship, which was re-branded as the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, in Spain, FIBA reported impressive ratings from nations which were participating in the tournament during the first week of the group phase. Most games involving European teams had a market share of at least 20%, including a 40% market share in Finland, for the Finnish national team’s game against the Dominican Republic. The TV ratings in the United States beat out the 2014 US Tennis Open, but some US sports media still described viewers in the US as not caring about the FIBA Basketball World Cup. In the Philippines, the entire tournament had an average reach of 67.8%.

Awards

FIBA names a Most Valuable Player for each tournament. Since the tournament opened to NBA players at the 1994 tournament for the first time, NBA players have won six of the seven MVP trophies awarded – Shaquille O’Neal for the United States in 1994, Germany’s Dirk Nowitzki at the 2002 tournament, Spain’s Pau Gasol at the 2006 tournament, Kevin Durant for the United States at the 2010 tournament, Kyrie Irving for the United States at the 2014 tournament and Spain’s Ricky Rubio at the 2019 tournament. The only exception was Dejan Bodiroga of FR Yugoslavia, who was the MVP of the 1998 tournament, when the NBA players were not able to participate, due to the 1998–99 NBA lockout.

Международная федерация баскетбола FIBA

Организация, которая объединила все национальные баскетбольные федерации, и определила основные направления развития мирового баскетбола, носит название Международной федерации баскетбольных ассоциаций (от фр. Federation Internationale de Basketball, cокращенно FIBA, в русской абревиатуре ФИБА). Эта организация проводит Чемпионаты мира по баскетболу, а также ряд других международных соревнований. В швейцарском городе Женева находится штаб-квартира ФИБА.

История создания

Решением международной конференции национальных баскетбольных ассоциаций, которая состоялась в Женеве 18 июня 1932 года, была образована Международная федерация баскетбола. В том году на совещание собрались представители восьми национальных комитетов баскетбола – Аргентины, Греции, Италии, Латвии, Португалии, Румынии, Чехословакии и Швейцарии. Несколько позже в 1989 году на конгрессе ФИБА, который состоялся в немецком городе Мюнхен, принимается решение, об допуске к участию в соревнованиях профессиональных баскетболистов во всех соревнованиях, которые организовывает ФИБА, в том числе и Олимпийские игры. Такое решение было принято потому, что любительский баскетбол поднялся до уровня профессиональных игроков и мог в полной мере противостоять профессионалам.

Соревнования под эгидой ФИБА

Начиная с 1950 года, проводится регулярный чемпионат мира по баскетболу среди мужчин, а с 1953 года в этом соревновании начинают принимать участие и женщины. Эти два турнира проводятся независимо друг от друга, с интервалом раз в четыре года.

Под эгидой ФИБА проходят континентальные первенства на всех пяти континентах планеты, и кроме того, проводят юниорские (до 18 лет) и юношеские (до 20 лет) первенства континента, которые проводятся исключительно в странах Америки, Африки и Европы.

Начиная с 1936 года, баскетбольные турниры постоянно входят в программу Летних Олимпийских игр. Организацией и проведением таких турниром занимаются страна организатор Олимпийских игр, а также в равной степени ФИБА и МОК.

Под эгидой ФИБА с 1972 года по 2002 год проводился международный турнир – Кубок Ронкетти. В 2003 году ему дают другое название – Женский Еврокубок (FIBA EuroCup Women).
