It is the first since it was agreed it would take place every four years, with a similar system of qualification as for the FIBA Basketball World Cup. It was originally scheduled to take place between 2 and 19 September 2021, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent postponement of the 2020 Summer Olympics to 2021, it has been postponed to 1 to 18 September 2022.
Like the previous two editions, the tournament is co-hosted by four countries. Games in the group stage are held in the Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany, and Italy. The knock-out phase will be played in Berlin, Germany.

The Greece men’s national basketball team (Greek: Eθνική Oμάδα Καλαθοσφαίρισης Ελλάδος) represents Greece in international basketball. They are controlled by the Hellenic Basketball Federation, the governing body for basketball in Greece. Greece is currently ranked ninth in the FIBA World Rankings.
Greece have appeared eight times at the FIBA World Cup, with their best performance coming in 2006 as runners-up, after beating the United States 101–95 in the tournament’s semi-final. Greece have also qualified for the EuroBasket 28 times, winning it twice; while also coming away with one silver (1989) and two bronze medals (1949, 2009) at the event. Some of the team’s highlights at the competition were beating the Soviet Union 103–101 in the final in Athens to win their first title in 1987, and defeating Germany by the score of 78–62 in the final in 2005. Moreover, the national team has also competed four times at the Olympic Games, with their best results being three 5th place finishes (1996, 2004, 2008).
