FIBA Oceania Championship is the name commonly used to refer to the Oceania basketball championships that take every two years between national teams of the continent. Through the 2015 edition, the Oceania Championships are also a qualifying tournament for the Basketball World Cups and Olympic Games. Beginning in 2017, all FIBA continental championships for men will be held on a four-year cycle, and the continental championships will no longer be part of the qualifying process for either the World Cup or Olympics. The 2017 Oceanian Championships will also be the last Oceanian Championships to ever be held as starting 2021, the tournament will merge with the FIBA Asia Championship to give way for the FIBA Asia-Pacific Championship[1]

When only Australia and New Zealand compete, the tournament is usually a best-of-three playoff; if other teams compete, a round-robin and a knockout stage is employed. In 2009, the Oceania Basketball Federation changed this format to a two game, home-and-away playoff between the two countries, with aggregate score as the tiebreaker should the teams split the series.

The Oceania Basketball Tournament

In 1997 basketball was included in the Pacific Mini Games, so therefore the Oceania Tournament was not played. The South Pacific Mini Games are held every four years for island teams in the two years between the main Pacific Games. These Games are held in countries with limited facilities and because of the large number of basketball entries this sport has not been included in previous Mini Games. Normally the Oceania Basketball Confederation conducts the Oceania Tournament at a similar time so as to provide competition for all countries. As a result no Australian or New Zealand teams participated in 1997.

There was no Oceania Basketball Tournament in 2005 because the Mini Games included basketball that year in Palau.
