The 2011 FIBA Under-19 World Championship was hosted by Latvia from June 30 to July 10, 2011. The draw for the Championship took place on February 17, 2011 in Riga. Teams played a round robin schedule, with the top three teams advancing to the knockout stage. Lithuania became the champion. Lithuanian captain Jonas Valančiūnas was chosen the Tournament MVP.



Below is a list of the venues which were used to host games during the 2011 FIBA Under-19 World Championship. All games of a preliminary round group were held in a single arena, as well as the games in the knockout round.


The draw held on February 17 divided the qualified teams into four groups named A, B, C, and D, as listed for the preliminary round. Aside from the fact that those teams in the same pot would not be in the same preliminary round groups, there were restrictions on how teams may be drawn. Before the draw was aware that Latvia will not be the same group with Lithuania, who will play in Liepāja. In addition to the FIBA wanted the first stage in each city to play over the three European teams, which meant that Russia should play a sample set of Valmiera groups.
