Spain and Israel presented the two bids shortlisted to host the biggest women’s basketball tournament.
Twenty three of the 26 members making up FIBA’s Central Board voted. Eighteen were in favour of Spain's bid, while five backed that of Israel.
“We would like to thank both Spain and Israel for submitting outstanding bids and giving us every reason to believe they would host a first-class event and make it a great success for all concerned,” said FIBA Secretary General and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member Patrick Baumann.
In recent years, FEB has developed a strong women’s national team programme which has produced great results, including winning EuroBasket Women 2013 and finishing runners-up at the 2014 FIBA World Championship for Women.
