Following the candidatures received for the FIBA U17 and U19 Basketball World Cups for both men and women, FIBA’s Central Board has confirmed the hosts of the upcoming Youth World Cups. 

The multi-year hosting model, introduced by FIBA in 2019, enables National Federations to host consecutive Youth World Cups, both U17 and U19 men’s and women’s. This model was put in place in order to maximize synergies and better organize and manage events while allowing National Federations to showcase their event-hosting capabilities at the world stage.

Below are the confirmed hosts for the U17 and U19 World Cups for both men and women taking place in 2024, 2025 and 2026:
