China Beat the Philippines will host World Cup 2019 FIBA

The Philippines even asked the help of Filipino-American actor Lou Diamond Phillips who gave his speech to support the Philippines bid to host World Cup 2019 but in the end FIBA chose China to host the 2019 World Cup. China will be hosting the men's basketball World Cup in 2019 for the first time, FIBA said.

China and the Philippines were the two final countries bidding for the tournament.

It is evident that FIBA take into consideration the size, facilities, resources and infrastructure which the Philippines lacks.
