The 2021 World Baseball Classic (WBC) is an international professional baseball tournament scheduled to be the fifth iteration of the WBC. The 2021 edition was canceled in May 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and is unlikely to be played until 2023.[1] The tournament had been expanded to accommodate 20 national teams from 16 teams of the 2017 edition.[2]

Qualification

In January 2020, the WBC announced the 16 national teams which participated at the 2017 World Baseball Classic will automatically qualify for the tournament.[3]

A qualifying tournament was scheduled for March 2020 in Tucson, Arizona, United States to determine the last four teams.[3] Twelve teams were split into two pools, and the top two teams in each pool will qualify.[2] On March 12, 2020, Major League Baseball announced that the qualifying tournaments were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[4]
