The second window of the FIBA ​​AmeriCup 2022 Qualifiers will be played in a “bubble” format from November 27 to December 1, 2020.
 
Taking into account health protocols due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FIBA has decided to return to competition in a “bubble” format which allows for a more controlled and secured environment for teams to compete. This format will also facilitate the implementation of governmental Sanitary Protocol required by many countries across the America’s zone.
 
Each of the chosen venues will host national teams that make up each group of the FIBA AmeriCup 2022 Qualifiers:
 
– Buenos Aires, Argentina (Group A & B): Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Panama, Paraguay and Uruguay.
– Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (Group C): Canada, Cuba, Virgin Islands and Dominican Republic.
– A final confirmation on the host country for Group D that includes Bahamas, United States, Mexico and Puerto Rico will be sent out in the next few days. 
 
“It is an honor to be back playing and allowing for competition around the world. Our National Federations and the entire basketball ecosystem need to compete, so together we continue to develop and promote our game. This upcoming qualifying period for the AmeriCup 2022 will be remembered as the restart of our game and we are extremely happy and excited with the possibilities,” said FIBA ​​Americas Executive Director Carlos Alves.
 
FIBA will soon release the schedule of the group matches.
 
The top three teams from each group will qualify for the FIBA ​​AmeriCup 2022.
