2016 FIBA U18 European Championship

The 2016 FIBA U18 European Championship was the 33rd edition of the FIBA U18 European Championship. The competition was originally scheduled to take place in Samsun, Turkey, from 30 July to 7 August 2016, but was postponed indefinitely due to the political unrest in the country at the time.[1] On 30 September 2016, FIBA decided that the tournament would take place from 16 to 22 December 2016.[2][3] The top five teams qualified for the 2017 FIBA Under-19 World Championship.
