The draw for the 2020 Olympic Qualifiers Tournament took place at the Patrick Baumann House of Basketball in Switzerland and the end result created some very interesting duels.

While the host countries of the four tournaments, Serbia, Croatia, Lithuania, and Canada have an obvious advantage, Slovenia which will face Lithuania and Greece which will travel to Canada, can also have high hopes.

Having said that, those hopes highly depend on the fact of Luka Doncic joining the Slovenian national team and Giannis Antetokounmpo doing the same with Greece.

The draw results were the following:

Victoria, Canada

Group A: Greece, China, Canada
Group B: Uruguay, Czech Republic, Turkey

Split, Croatia

Group A: Germany, Russia, Mexico
Group B:  Tunisia, Croatia, Brazil

Kaunas, Lithuania

Group A: Lithuania, South Korea, Venezuela
Group B: Poland, Slovenia, Angola

Belgrade, Serbia

Group A: Dominican Republic, New Zealand, Serbia
Group B:  Puerto Rico, Italy, Senegal

The three teams of each group in each tournament will play against each other, the top two of each group will get to the semifinal of each tournament and the four finals will decide the four last tickets to Tokyo.
