The International Basketball Federation (FIBA, from its French meaning) calculates the world rankings of all of its basketball teams.

Calculation

Only FIBA tournaments are used in calculations for the tournaments; other tournaments, such as regional championships, invitationals, and friendlies are not included.[1]

Events' weights

Each FIBA event has a weight, partly based on the strength of the various national teams participating:[1]

Number Event Weight
2 FIBA World Championship and FIBA World Championship for Women 5
2 Olympic basketball tournaments 5
2 FIBA Under-21 World Championship and FIBA Under-21 World Championship for Women 1
2 FIBA Under-19 World Championship and FIBA Under-19 World Championship for Women 1
5 FIBA Africa Championship and FIBA Africa Championship for Women 0.2
5 FIBA Americas Championship and FIBA Americas Championship for Women 0.8
5 FIBA Asia Championship and FIBA Asia Championship for Women 0.3
5 Eurobasket and Eurobasket Women 1

Continental junior championships (U-18) and youth championships for both sexes are accorded the same weights as their continental senior counterparts.

Competition ranking points

As opposed to football (soccer) tournaments, teams still have to go through a series of consolation and classification rounds even if they've been eliminated from title contention, so that a complete ranking of the teams will be possible.[1]

Cycle and updates
