Bubbles for the Eurobasket 2021 Women's Windows

The November and February Windows for the Women's EuroBasket 2021 will be held in a 'bubble' format as decided by FIBA Europe.


The November and February qualifying Windows for the Women's EuroBasket 2021 will be held in a 'bubble' format as decided by the Central Board of FIBA Europe. At its ninth meeting of the 2019-2023 mandate, held by teleconference, the board also discussed the criteria for choosing the hosts of the "bubbles" for the upcoming FIBA EuroBasket 2022 Qualifiers, following the decision made last week by the FIBA Executive Committee.

Each of the male and female "bubbles" will be made up of teams in one group (4 or 3 for some of the female groups). If there is no host for any of the groups, this group will be included and played in an existing "bubble". The same principles will also apply to FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Pre-Qualifiers groups scheduled to be played during the same window.

The most important criteria for choosing the hosts will be health and travel guarantees and compliance with FIBA health protocols, including testing and controlled entry to a safe environment in the competition city. Preference will be given to candidates from nations that are scheduled to play two home games in the next few windows.

"Bubbles" will be played with or without spectators, depending on the host nation government's restrictions on this particular issue. Nominations for the "bubble" hosts of the Men's and Women's Qualifiers will be discussed and confirmed during the next Board meeting on October 8, 2020.
