The FIBA Asia.

At the FIBA Asia Congress held in Doha, Qatar, the Central Board awarded the hosting rights to China,[1] at venues still to be decided by the Board. The winner of the tournament qualifies for the Basketball tournament on the 2016 Summer Olympics, while the Silver and Bronze medalists will go under the FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament, as stated by FIBA and the IOC in qualification quota.


According to the FIBA Asia rules, the host nation China and 2014 FIBA Asia Cup champions Iran automatically qualified. East Asia, West Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Persian Gulf each had two berths while Central Asia and South Asia each had one slot allotted. The other four places are allocated to the zones according to performance in the 2014 FIBA Asia Cup. Therefore, with Chinese Taipei, Philippines, Jordan, and Japan finishing in the top four in that tournament other than Iran and China which were both direct qualifiers, East Asia gained another two berths while the Southeast Asia and West Asia gained an additional slot each.

Included are the teams' FIBA World Rankings prior to the tournament.
