    About FIBA 3x3 Basketball


    With over 250 million players worldwide, 3x3 basketball is amongst the most played recreational sports in the world. Following the successful introduction in the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, the ultimate goal is that 3x3 becomes a self-sustained new FIBA discipline and enters the Olympic Games by 2020.


    Considered to be the number one urban team sport in the world, 3x3 basketball is increasingly becoming important for the development of basketball. The FIBA 3x3 competition network includes open tournaments, FIBA 3x3 World Tour (for professional teams representing a city) and the FIBA 3x3 World Cup (for national teams).
