This much anticipated tournament will be held from August 1 – 11, 2013 at the Mall of Asia Arena. The FIBA Asia 2013 championship is supposed to be held in Beirut, Lebanon. However, the FIBA Asia Executive Committee decided to hand over the hosting rights to the Philippines due to the Syrian civil war which has affected the current situation of Lebanon. Also, there are concerns for the people’s security in the Middle East, so this is believed to be a good decision

Listed below is the schedule for the opening rounds. Results for the preliminary rounds shall determine the flow of the game.
