The FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2023 field has been finalized following the conclusion of the Qualifiers, with the last five berths confirmed on Sunday.

Played over three windows in November 2021, November 2022 and February 2023, the Qualifiers saw the European national teams compete for places in the 39th edition of the continent's flagship women's basketball event, set to take place from June 15-25, 2023 in Tel Aviv, Israel and Ljubljana, Slovenia.

With co-hosts, Israel and Slovenia qualified automatically; the rest of the 16-team field was completed by the 10 group winners and four best-ranked second-placed teams.

Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain and Turkey booked their tickets as winners of their respective groups. At the same time, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary and Slovakia were the four runners-up to qualify.  

The qualified nations will learn their Final Round opponents on March 8 at the FIBA Women's EuroBasket 2023 draw in Slovenia, which will sort the participating teams into four groups of four teams each.
