EuroBasket 2022, the newest edition of the quadrennial tournament to determine the basketball champion of Europe, tipped off on Sept. 1 and runs through Sept. 18 with games played in the Czech Republic, Georgia, Italy and Germany. The knockout stage of the competition, including the final, will be held in Berlin. Luka Doncic and reigning champions Slovenia were supposed to defend their title in 2021, but when the 2020 Olympics were postponed a year due to COVID-19, EuroBasket was also pushed back. 

The slight schedule adjustment will not affect future tournaments, however, and the next event will be held in 2025 as scheduled. 

Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing for Greece, while reigning back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic is suiting up for Serbia. Those two, along with Doncic, highlight the list of NBA players who are in action in the tournament. Also worth watching is France, which won the silver medal at the 2020 Olympics. France has five NBA players suiting up, including three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert. 

Ahead of the tournament, here’s everything you need to know:

Format

The tournament will begin with the group stage, which features four groups of six teams. Each group will play a round-robin, in which each team will play the other five teams in its group once. Teams will receive two points for a win and one point for a loss, and the top four teams in each group will advance to the knockout stage. If two teams are tied in points, their head-to-head matchup will be the first tiebreaker. Subsequent tiebreakers will be point differential followed by points scored if necessary. 

The 16 teams that advance to the knockout stage will then be placed in a bracket based on their qualifying position. From there, it’s single-elimination matchups all the way until the final, which will be played in Berlin on Sept. 18.
