The path for Canada’s senior men’s basketball team to the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 has been revealed.

FIBA announced Tuesday that Canada will be in Group C for the first round of the Americas qualifiers beginning this November alongside the Dominican Republic, U.S. Virgin Islands and Bahamas.

Eighty countries across four regions — Africa, Americas, Asia/Oceania and Europe — are looking to secure their place among the 30 nations that will join hosts Japan and the Philippines in the 32-team World Cup.

The Americas region features 16 teams split into four groups of four during the first round. Teams play a double round-robin schedule against those within their group. Twelve teams advance to the second round, now divided into two groups, with seven teams reaching the World Cup: the top three teams from each group plus the best fourth-place team.

First-round games are scheduled for three different windows: Nov. 20-30, Feb. 21-March 1 and June 27-July 5.

Missing the glut of its NBA talent, Canada had a disappointing showing at the 2019 World Cup in China finishing 21st overall.
