FIBA U18 Women's European Championship

Short History

     The U18 Women's European Championship is a women's under-18 international basketball competition that is governed by FIBA Europe. First edition was held in 1965, in Bulgaria. From its inauguration to 1983, championships were held biennially each even year. After the 1984 edition, it was decided to hold tournaments biennially each odd year. From 2004 onwards it is held every year, except in 2020, when it was cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic. FIBA Europe also organize the Division B and C tournament, so the three bottom teams of the Division A Championship are relegate to next year's Division B Championship.
