With a newly-designed trophy, FIBA EuroBasket 2017 will also mark the end of a two-year cycle for Europe's premier basketball competition. Following the introduction of FIBA's new competition system, FIBA EuroBasket will be held every four years. This all leads to an even greater desire to be crowned European champions, with the chance to do so becoming rarer.
The action tips off in Group A (Helsinki) and Group B (Tel Aviv) on Thursday, and will get underway a day later in the remaining two groups.
Defending champions Spain, once more enter the tournament among the hot favorites, however there are any number of teams also staking their claims to take home the trophy.
There is no shortage of ways to keep up-to-date with all of the action. You can follow the tournament on the official website, eurobasket.basketball; on the official app; on FIBA's social media platforms on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram; and of course around the world on livebasketball.tv.
