Format of FIBA 2019 Basketball World Cup:

The continental championships no longer fall under the purview of the World Cup’s qualification system. On the other hand, two rounds of continental qualifying tournaments were held over two years in a home-and-away format. The maiden round of the qualifiers was conducted in late 2017 and early 2018. The Americas, Asia/Oceania and Africa qualifiers featured 16 teams each, while Europe had 32 teams. Division A teams were categorized under four groups, which will be held in a home-and-away round-robin. The top three in each groups advanced to round two, and last placed teams played the best Division B teams to qualify for the next season’s Division A. Round two, held in late 2018 and early 2019, had teams being split in groups of six. Thus, there were a total of 4 groups if Europe and 2 in the other qualifiers. The points from round one were carried over, and teams had to face another three teams again in a home-and-away round-robin. Ever since 2019, there were no wild card qualifications. Unlike previous times, the Olympic champions no longer directly qualify to the World Cup. On 7th May 2017 in Guangzhou, China, the draw for the qualifiers was held.
