Welcome to Turkey! The World Championship is played every 4 years and determines the world's best basketball nation.

Leaving Australia behind, Turkey qualified to host 17th FIBA World Championship for Women to be organized in 2014, from 27 September - 5 October 2014

The Preliminary Round will be played at Ankara Arena and Abdi Ipekci Istanbul, with the Final Round to follow at Istanbul Sports Arena.

The country which will host 2014 FIBA World Championship for Women has been elected at the voting done by FIBA Board in Lyon, France.

Turkey, which has left Australia behind with a 16 to 4 votes given in a closed voting session, qualified to host the organization.

Voting at Sofitel Hotel started with the presentations at 16:00 with Turkish local time. Australia made the first presentation and Turkey made the second.
The candidates were given a time of half an hour during this part and fifteen minutes for each candidate has been allocated to the questions of FIBA Board.

Voting started after the presentations. At the end of voting, during which 20 board member of FIBA other than 2 Australian members Bob Elphinston and Steve voted, Turkey qualified to host to organization with 16 votes whereas Australia had 4 of the votes.

The fact that almost all the saloons to host the championship have been completed will bring TBF very important advantages to spread, sublimate and develop basketball. Thus, an important part of concentration regarding preparation works will be able to be allocated to promotion and marketing of the FIBA World Championship for Women.

The fact that Turkish Basketball Federation and Istanbul left behind Melbourne, a city which hosted the most important sports organizations in the world, by landslide is attributed to the knowledge and ability of TBF in high level sports organizations, to the success of Istanbuls in important sports organizations in recent years, the increase in trust for Turkey in recent years, to the presentation which has been prepared meticulously and which has got credits and to the support of state that TBF feels all the time.

It is also A Social Responsibility Project
First element that motivated Turkish Basketball Federation for candidature of hosting 2014 FIBA Basketball Championship for Women is its intention to invest in womens basketball. TBF, an organization which considers the championship not solely as a sportive organization but also an opportunity for millions of young girls who are being raised,aims to increase its works regarding this area to the highest level with the help of the championship.

USA is the First and the Last Champion
United States of America, which won the golden medal in the first championship, held in Chile in 1953, has the first place in medallion rankings with 8 championships it has won out of 16 organizations. USA also has beaten the hosts of the last championship, Czech Republic, at the final last year and won the championship. Russia won 6 championships and Brazil and Australia won one championships out of 16 FIBA World Championship for Women organizations which has only 4 different champions until now.

The FIBA World Championship for Women, which will come to Europe for the 6th time while Turkey hosts it, has been organized 7 times in America continent for the most. Asia hosted the organization 3 times and Oceania held it for once. The country where the championship has been held the most is Brazil with 4 times.
