International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Europe are set to announce the organisers of the EuroBasket 2017 tournament at a ceremony in Munich tomorrow.

Finland, Israel, Poland, Romania and Turkey are the five contenders to stage the tournament having met the November 2 deadline, following the opening of the bid process on October 1.

FIBA Europe invited countries to submit bids for the Championships, which was first held in Switzerland in 1935, with three options available, as they could either host the whole event, a group in the opening phase or a group together with the final phase.

It followed the success of the 2015 edition of the event, which was the first edition to be staged in more than one country with group matches were held in Montpellier, Berlin, Riga and Zagreb, while the final stage of the tournament took place in the French city Lille.

Ukraine had initially been schedule to host the full competition this year but was stripped of the tournament in June 2014, due to the unstable political situation and security issues in the country, which culminated in Russia's annexation of the Crimea region in March of last year.
