FIBA World Cup Qualifiers

20 October 2017

23 November away at Sweden and 26 November home to Turkey

Palats Sport (Sportivna 1)

The Ukrainian national basketball team sets out on the long road to qualify for the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China – and eventually the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan – with its first qualification matches in November. The team travels to Norrkoping, Sweden for their opening game on 23 November before returning to host Turkey at Kyiv’s Sports Palace (Sportivna 1) on 26 November. Ukraine will play Latvia, the other team in Group B, when the competition resumes in February. Ukraine will likely be without the services of NBAers Alex Len of the Phoenix Suns and Joel Bolomboy of the Utah Jazz, but hope to count on the likes of blue chip NCAA prospect Svyatoslav Mykhaliuk and captain Vyacheslav Kravtsov in their efforts. The top two European teams at the 2019 World Cup automatically qualify for the 2020 Olympics. Ukraine finished 15th at this summer’s Eurobasket competition.

Tickets: 60-200 UAH
