The Czech national basketball team (Czech: Česká basketbalová reprezentace) is governed by the Czech Basketball Federation. They are one of the newest national basketball teams in the world, having split from the Czechoslovakia national basketball team after the dissolution of the unified state in 1993, with the Slovakia national basketball team continuing as the successor of the Czechoslovak team. Its best accomplishment was seventh place at the EuroBasket 2015. They will make their first FIBA Basketball World Cup appearance at the 2019 edition in China.
