Following the decision granting Europe three Wild Cards for the upcoming 2014 FIBA World Cup, FIBA Europe has confirmed that a total of 26 teams will participate in the EuroBasket 2015 2nd Qualification Round Draw, next week in Spain.

FIBA Europe has also confirmed the seedings for the Draw, which will take place at 13:00 on Monday 3rd February, at the Majestic Hotel in Barcelona.

The 26 teams will be drawn in seven (7) groups in total - five (5) groups of four(4) teams and two (2) groups of three (3) teams.

The first placed teams in each group, plus the six best second-placed teams, a total of 13 teams, will qualify to the Final Round in Ukraine.

In order to determine the six best second-placed teams the results of the games against the fourth (4th) placed team, in each of the groups of four teams will be removed from the ranking process, in order to rank teams on a ‘like for like' basis across all of the groups.

The game days for the 2nd Qualification Round are provisionally set for 10, 13, 17, 20, 24 and 27 August 2014.

11 teams have already punched their ticket to EuroBasket 2015.
