Accommodation and transport

Ensuring the accommodation needs for all travelling to the FIBA U19 World Championship for Men is both one of the organiser's main priorities and one of their major concerns. In spite of this being a youth competition, the number and size of teams and accompanying delegations, as well as the many officials and volunteers required to host such a tournament, and of course the significant media numbers expected, will stretch the country's hotel sector to the maximum.

For this reason, we highly recommend making your bookings as early as possible. We remind media that reservation fees from the following list of official media hotels for applicants being denied accreditation will be reimbursed.

Transportation between the official media hotels and the arenas will be provided free of charge. A schedule of shuttle bus times will be displayed in all official media hotel lobby areas.
