The 1997 FIBA European Championship, commonly called FIBA EuroBasket 1997, was the 30th FIBA EuroBasket regional basketball championship held by FIBA Europe, which also served as Europe qualifier for the 1998 FIBA World Championship, giving a berth to the top four (or five, depending on Greece reaching one of the top four places) teams in the final standings. It was held in Spain between 24 June and 6 July 1997. Sixteen national teams entered the event under the auspices of FIBA Europe, the sport's regional governing body. The cities of Badalona, Barcelona and Girona hosted the tournament. FR Yugoslavia won its seventh FIBA European title by defeating Italy with a 61–49 score in the final. Yugoslavia's Saša Đorđević was voted the tournament's MVP.

The winners in the semifinals compete for the European Championship, while the losers from the semifinals play a consolation game for the third place.
  • The losers in the quarterfinals compete in a separate bracket to define 5th through 8th place in the final standings.
  • The four teams eliminated in the second stage compete in another bracket to define 9th through 12th place in the final standings.
  • The four teams eliminated in the preliminary round compete in another bracket to define 13th through 16th place in the final standings.
