Basketball - FIBA World Cup

Now held quadrennially at the mid-point of the Olympic circle, the tournament began in 1950 as the World Basketball Championship with just 10 teams but now attracts 24 entrants to the finals after a global qualifying competiton, along the same lines as football's FIFA World Cup.
In 1967 the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) inaugurated the Naismith Trophy to be awarded to the world champions and the name changed to the FIBA World Cup for the 2014 edition.
