FIBA Standard Basketball Court Size
As the parent body of the international basketball federation, FIBA has implemented standard rules for the sport of basketball. One of the most important rules is regarding the size of the basketball court. The standard basketball court for FIBA tournaments is 28 meters x 15 meters. With a diameter of 3.6 meters in the center circle and a 3-point line distance from the basketball hoop, it is 6.75 meters from the center of the court and 6.6 meters from the corner spot. The FIBA standard basketball hoop height is 3.05 meters or 10 feet with a free throw distance of 4.6 meters. The FIBA standard itself is widely used in countries around the world and is the benchmark for major tournaments such as the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
NBA Standard Basketball Court Size
Whereas there is little difference between FIBA and NBA standards. The standard NBA field has a slightly larger size, which is 28.65 long and 15.24 meters wide, this applies to NBA and WNBA competitions. The difference is also in the 3-point line distance, which is 7.24 meters for the center area and 6.7 meters from the corner. The ring height is the same as the FIBA standard. This measure is only used in NBA or WNBA competitions in the United States because most other countries use the FIBA standard for their court sizes. In addition to the size of the field there are several other rules that have a standard difference between FIBA and the NBA, we will discuss this on another occasion!
