TEHRAN (Tasnim)- The Saudi Basketball Federation (SBF) has been awarded the hosting rights for the FIBA Asia Cup 2025, with all the games to be played in Jeddah.
This will be the second time that Saudi Arabia has hosted this prestigious continental event.
The last time the Asia Cup was held in the Kingdom dates back to 1997 when Korea lifted the trophy after beating Japan, 78-76, in the final in Riyadh. The host made it to its first-ever semi-finals as well, finishing in the fourth place.
As there is continued growth for basketball in the region, the FIBA Asia Cup 2025 will engage millions of fans as Asia’s flagship event makes its return to the Persian Gulf.
