The FIBA Americas Championship is the name commonly used to refer to the American Basketball Championship that takes place every two years between national teams of the continents. Through the 2015 edition, the Americas Championship is also a qualifying tournament for the FIBA Basketball World Cup and the Summer Olympic Games. Beginning in 2017, the championship, along with all other FIBA continental championships for men, will be played once every four years, and the continental championships will no longer be part of the qualifying process for either the World Cup or Olympics.[1]

Since FIBA organized the entire Western Hemisphere west of the Atlantic Ocean under one zone, countries from Northern America, Central America, the Caribbean and South America compete in this tournament.
