Eurobasket decided not to wait and introduce the main news, events, players and teams before the Tournament starts. As you know U 21 Championship for Women is scheduled for June 29. SK Vidnoje Basketball Hall that is in Russia will open doors for the teams and be a host arena for the Championship.

Today we would like you to introduce the teams that will participate in the tournament. 12 teams will represent Europe, North America, South America, Australia, Asia and Africa. Eligible are all players who are born 1st January 1986 or later. The 12 teams are divided into two groups-A and B. In Group A there are Belgium, Canada, China, France, Mali and the host team Russia. Australia, Brazil, Hungary, Japan, Spain and USA made up group B.

The teams from the first to fourth places in each group will play the Final Round for the first eight places. All other teams will play classification games for the positions 9-12.

Many teams started to prepare for the tournament long time ago. USA and France had a friendly game between each other as USA overcame 71:57. Australia won the Four-Nation Pre-World Championship Tournament in Spain over the weekend, winning all of their three games. The Sapphires recorded powerful wins over China 93:52, Brazil 94:77, and a gritty 75:68 victory over host nation Spain.
USA won the previous Championship that was held in Croatia. That time USA beat Brazil in the Final of the tournament. France satisfied with the bronze medals.
