Exciting, urban and innovative, 3x3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. Steered by FIBA, the world governing body for basketball, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.
FIBA came up with a unified set of rules for 3x3 and organises official competitions, such as the FIBA 3x3 World Tour, the FIBA 3x3 All Stars and national-team events. 3x3 is already played at the Youth Olympic Games, the European and the Asian Games and FIBA has made an official bid for the urban discipline to be added to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
