The trophy is what the 16 teams will be competing for in Jakarta, Indonesia, from July 12–24.

The trophy will be making stops along different capital cities of qualified national teams before it ends up in Jakarta, waiting for a champion to be crowned, according to a FIBA press statement.

The championship cup, in its golden and silver colors, landed in Lebanon — who was the last cup host in 2017 — as its first stop. The cup will also pass through Australia, Bahrain, China, India, Taipei, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, Japan, Iran, Syria, South Korea, and New Zealand.

The Jordan Basketball Federation did not specify the place where the trophy will be displayed. However, basketball fans will have the opportunity to take memorial photos with the cup when it arrives.
