It’s EuroBasket time! The United States is not in this competition (obviously), but there is still plenty of skill on display as EuroBasket showcases the prime talent that is European Basketball.

What is EuroBasket?

It’s a quadrennial Basketball Competition between the men’s national teams that are part of FIBA Europe. It began in 1935 and although the competition has undergone some evolutions, it’s a premier European Basketball showcase.

What Is the Format?

24 teams are divided into four groups and those teams play a round-robin tournament. The top four teams in each group advance, but 16 total teams make it through to the knockout stage.

Those 16 teams then play in a single-elimination tournament where a champion is ultimately crowned. (For more specifics, you can check out the FIBA Website.)

When and Where Can I Watch?

The tournament begins on Sept. 1 and ends on Sept. 18 — the game times are all throughout the day, generally starting at 7:20 a.m. ET. The last game typically tips off by 4:35 p.m. ET as the playoffs progress. ESPN+ will air every game.

What Are the Primary Differences Between EuroBasket and NBA Rules?

Some countries are excited to just be in the Group Stage, but others are perennial contenders as they mesh NBA Stars with their home-grown talent.

At the time of this writing, not every team has finalized its roster, but I’ve taken the time to outline some of the notable/familiar names.
