Basketball World Cup: France is in the running! Calendar, TV broadcast… The program

The 2023 Basketball World Cup has begun! The Finland-Australia and Angola-Italy meetings opened the ball for an edition that promises to be very undecided. The France team will have a lot to do from its first match this Friday, August 25, 2023 at 3:30 p.m. against Canada and its seven players playing in the NBA. The Blues are among the favorites for this competition as bronze medalists of the last edition in China, Olympic vice-champions in Tokyo and European vice-champions in Berlin.

Despite Victor Wembanyama’s package, the France team can count on the return of major players Nicolas Batum and Nando De Colo. Vincent Collet, the coach, does not consider himself embarrassed by the status of his team, placed among the favorites of the competition by the followers. Near The Team, he confided that he “would like to give reason to all those who think that we are part of the teams that can be world champions.” The course of the Blues will be scrutinized very closely less than a year from the Paris Olympic Games.

The French basketball team arrives in Asia with the desire to win the title and do better than third place. In the last two editions (2014 and 2019), the Blues have failed at the gates of the final. They obviously want to play a final in a World Cup. They also want to mark the occasion one year before the Olympic Games which will be played at home. The tricolors have this objective in sight which is their priority. The gang of Evan Fournier and Rudy Gobert will be among the title candidate nations with Spain, Argentina and the United States, who will arrive with a team without their NBA stars, but with sacred customers like Anthony Edwards.

Here is the schedule of the Blues for the first group stage:

  • Canada- France : Friday August 25 at 3:30 p.m.
  • France – Latvia: Sunday August 27 at 3:30 p.m.
