MANILA, Philippines – After more than two weeks of nonstop basketball action, the FIBA World Cup 2023 held in Manila came to a close last September 10.

Excitement ran at an all-time high for the local fans, as the Philippines enjoyed the honor of hosting the world’s best teams as they battled it out for basketball supremacy.

Records were broken: The opening match between Gilas Pilipinas and the Dominican Republic at the Philippine Arena last August 25 set the FIBA World Cup record for live attendance as some 38,115 fans witnessed history unfold.
