A total of 20 countries/regions will vie in the 2023 World Baseball Classic 
(TM), the only world-class tournament featuring participation by Major League 
Baseball players. Launched in 2006 and held every four years, this tournament 
will take place in 2023 for the first time in six years, having been postponed 
for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first round of the tournament will see four groups of five teams each 
competing at venues in Tokyo (Japan), Taichung (Taiwan), Phoenix (U.S.) and 
Miami (U.S.), with the top two teams from each group advancing to the 
quarterfinals to be held in Tokyo and Miami. The four top finishers will then 
move into the final round in Miami, where an elimination tournament format will 
be used for the semifinals and final to determine the best team in the world.
