8 Chinese cities including Beijing are now bidding for the 2019 Men's Basketball World Cup. It is the second time Beijing has bid for the game in 2009, according to the Beijing Administration of Sport.

Beijing failed last time, when the game was called the Men's Basketball World Championship (2014).

Wuhan, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Foshan and Dongguan are also bidding for the game, an authority said.

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) is going to carry out a week long investigation on the bidding cities earlier next March. The investigation will focus on the facilities and infrastructure of the bidding cities including gyms, availability of accommodation and transportation.

Meanwhile, the FIBA is to hold a symposium together with the CBA, to listen to the cities their statements of the ideals, aspirations and objectives for holding the games.

The final result will be announced by the FIBA in June.
