Known as the FIBA World Championship from 1950 until 2010, the FIBA Basketball World Cup is the flagship event of the International Basketball Federation.
The first-ever FIBA Basketball World Cup took place in Argentina in 1950 with the host nation prevailing in the Final against the USA.
Since the first staging of the tournament in Buenos Aires, where 10 teams did battle, the field has grown exponentially and grew to a record 32 national teams for the 2019 edition.
