ABOUT 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup

The 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup will be the 19th tournament of the FIBA Basketball World Cup for men's national basketball teams. The tournament will be the second to feature 32 teams and will be hosted by multiple nations for the first time in its history - the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia - from 25 August to 10 September 2023. The tournament will serve as qualification for the 2024 Summer Olympics, where the top two teams from each of the Americas and Europe, and the top team from each of Africa, Asia and Oceania, will qualify alongside the tournament's host France.

ABOUT One by Penfolds

One by Penfolds is a curated collection of wines from Australia, California and France designed in partnership with Human Made founder NIGO. One by Penfolds celebrates what makes us all different and unique, but also the things that bring us together – as represented by the winemaking regions from where the One by Penfolds range is made around the world. Using his signature style, NIGO designed three animal motifs which feature on the wine labels – a crocodile, rooster and bear. The designs represent the winemaking regions where One by Penfolds wines are sourced – Australia, France and America. Each One by Penfolds wine has its own distinct personality while remaining anchored by Penfolds 'House Style'. This worldly set of wines are medium-bodied, vibrant, and aromatic.
