The International Basketball Federation (Fiba) has confirmed the Finnish city of Tampere as one of the group stage hosts for EuroBasket 2025.


  • Next edition of continental basketball tournament will be staged across Finland, Latvia, Poland and Cyprus
  • Tampere’s Nokia Arena will be one of four host venues for the EuroBasket group stage


EuroBasket heads to Finland in 2025 after the country’s capital Helsinki last hosted the group stage of the tournament in 2017. Tampere and Helsinki previously co-hosted the championships in 1967.


“In recent years, Tampere has shown that it’s capable of organising high-quality international events,” said Ari Tammivaara, event director of the Finnish local organising committee.

“[The Nokia Arena] is conveniently located in the center of the city, built basically on top of the train station; providing great logistical opportunities to set up a basketball festival for whole Finland.”
