The FIBA Americas Championship is the name commonly used to refer to the American basketball championships that take place every two years between national teams of the continents. The Americas Championship is also a qualifying tournament for the FIBA World Championships and the Olympic Games.

Since FIBA organized the entire Western Hemisphere west of the Atlantic Ocean under one zone, countries from North America, Central America, the Caribbean and South America compete in this tournament.
