2014 FIBA World Championships for Women
The 2014 FIBA World Championships for women was awarded to Turkey overnight.
Turkey will host the 2014 FIBA World Championship for Women after getting the nod over Australia for the honour.
"We had two outstanding bids, with both countries doing an amazing job of giving the board very good reasons to believe they were very capable of hosting the event and having it be a great success," said Baumann.
“The quality of the two bids is testament to the growth of women's basketball.”
Turkey hosted last summer’s FIBA World Championship for Men.
