The FIBA Americas Under-20 Championship was the name commonly used to refer to the American basketball championships for players under 20 years that took place every four years among national teams of the continents. The winners qualified for the now-defunct FIBA Under-21 World Championship. This event was previously the FIBA Americas Under-21 Championship, but FIBA decided to lower the age limit for the FIBA 22 & Under World Championship in December 1998, and was renamed as the World Championship for Young Men. In 2004, the name was changed yet again to FIBA Under-21 World Championship, and the qualifying tournament was renamed to the present FIBA Americas Under-20 Championship.[1]
