Basketball – 2022 Women’s World Cup
It will take place from September 22 to October 1 and will pit 12 nations against each other, divided into two groups of six teams each.
The group stage will determine the teams that will participate in the quarter-finals. These will be determined by drawing lots during the competition. The composition of the podium will not be known until the end of the last day of the tournament.
