FIBA selection committee had announced this morning Egypt to host the upcoming FIBA U19 World Championship in 2017 after competing with three other countries like Italy and Latvia.

The Egyptian file was organized by Mohamed Abd El-Motaleb the Egyptian federation vice president and was supported from Egyptian famous soccer Arsenal player Mohamed Elnini and athoers

For almost 40 years, the FIBA U19 World Championship has provided the platform for an array of some of the sport's biggest stars to showcase their talent on the international stage.

First staged in 1979 in Brazil, the USA collected three of the first four titles on offer, setting the early pace but having their run interrupted by a Yugoslavia side in 1987 which boasted the likes of Toni Kukoc and Vlade Divac, who would both become household names for their exploits at senior level and in the NBA.

Greece would take their first honours in 1995 behind MVP Efthymios Rentzias and it initiated a run of four different champions and also four maiden winners.

Spain were next in line four years later, with Pau Gasol on their roster - although it was 'La Bomba' Juan Carlos Navarro who fired them to glory in neighbouring Portugal.

To this day, the success of Australia in 2003 remains the only title to have been won by a nation from outside of the USA or Europe. But then they did have the free-scoring Andrew Bogut to call upon as he amassed a stellar 26.3 points per game.

Serbia then triumphed in 2007 - by beating a USA team in the Final that had 2015 NBA MVP Stephen Curry in its line-up.

Once the competition began to be played every two years beginning in 2009, it was to ignite USA who have since lifted three of the last four titles.

Lithuania were the last team outside of the USA to finish as champions, benefiting from an inspired tournament from Jonas Valanciunas who finished as top scorer and MVP in 2011 - backed by huge support with the tournament being held in neighbouring Latvia.

NBA duo Jahil Okafor and Aaron Gordon fuelled the USA back to the pinnacle of the podium in 2013, inflicting what proved to be successive Final defeats for Serbia.

The last edition, held in Greece in the summer of 2015, resulted in USA defending their crown, with Jalen Brunson honoured as MVP.
