2022 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup: Washington, D.C. to host qualifier round with Team USA

The USA Basketball women’s national team will play and host a qualifier tournament for the 2022 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup on Feb. 10-13 in Washington, D.C. The venue has yet to be determined and we’ll get there in a bit.

The Americans have already qualified for the World Cup because they won the Gold Medal in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. However, due to FIBA regulations, the Americans are still required to participate in all continental and world qualifiers. Therefore, the tournament will effectively be a group of friendlies, though the team and players won’t take it that way.
