3x3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. FIBA has developed 3x3 as the second basketball discipline to attract a new audience and provide more opportunities for its member associations and players worldwide.
3x3 is simple and flexible enough to be played anywhere by anybody. All you need is a hoop, a half-court and six players. In 2012, FIBA created a free digital platform to help the public and private organisers run their events, and the community of 3x3 players to find tournaments to play worldwide.
