It was already clear that the Poles would definitely play against the Czechs. FIBA allows hosts to pick one opponent, and our southern neighbors have just chosen white and red. Therefore, Poland and the Czech Republic will face Prague, and the remaining four competitors will come from the first, fourth, fifth and sixth basket. It definitely won’t be fourth basket hosts Georgia and Germany.
The draw will be held in Berlin, where the knockout stage of the 2022 European Basketball Championship has been planned. Four teams from each of the four groups will advance to the top sixteen.
Baskets ahead of the EuroBasket 2022 draw:
1: France, Greece, Spain, Serbia
2: The Czech Republic, Lithuania, Russia and Italy
3: Croatia, Poland, Slovenia, Turkey
4: Finland, Georgia, Germany, Ukraine
5: Belgium, Israel, Hungary, United Kingdom
6: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Estonia, Netherlands
