Nigeria’s national female basketball team, D’Tigress, has been drawn in Group B alongside Turkey, Argentina and Australia for the 2018 FIBA Women’s World Cup scheduled to take place in Tenerife, Spain.
The 2018 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup, the 18th edition of FIBA’s premier international tournament for women’s national basketball teams, will be held in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain from 22 to 30 September 2018.
This will be the first edition to use the name of FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup. After the last edition, FIBA changed the name of the competition from the FIBA World Championship for Women, in order to align its name with that of the corresponding men’s competition.
The United States are the two-time defending champions. This tournament will see the World Cup debut of Belgium, Latvia and Puerto Rico.
