The FIBA Basketball World Cup is an international basketball tournament organized by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). It features national teams from around the world competing for the world championship title. The tournament is held every four years and is a significant event in the basketball calendar, showcasing top-tier basketball talent on a global stage.

This year’s FIBA World Cup for men’s basketball is held from August 25 to September 10, and co-hosted by the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia.

Catch the FIBA 2023 fever wherever you are!

It could be right where 16 of the world’s 32 best basketball teams will engage in battle — at the massive Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, the historic Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City, or the state-of-the-art SM Mall of Asia Arena in the Bay Area in Pasay City.

Or, if you want to have world class basketball and world caliber entertainment together in one venue — then visit the newly opened FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Fan Zone at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall located at the ground floor of the new Entertainment Mall on Seaside Blvd., adjacent to the iconic giant MOA Eye ferris wheel.

The fun-filled activity dates coincide with the frenzied action raging on the same days at the nearby Mall of Asia Arena, where the Group and Final Phases of the FIBA 2023 will be held.

Other than the exciting prizes that will be raffled off, fans can also purchase FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 merchandise as well as tickets to games.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, a watch party will be assembled for those who want to follow the FIBA 2023 games held in Okinawa and Jakarta!

Since these fixtures will not be available to regular pay-per-view customers here, except in limited institutions, from the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Fan Zone, you can watch Luka Doncic and Slovenia and defending champion Spain battle with global competition in Japan and Indonesia for the right to fly to the Philippines for the Final Phase of the FIBA 2023 at the MOA Arena.

How about that for the ultimate treat?

So, everybody, get ready, because the heat is on. And it couldn’t get any hotter than at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Fan Zone!
