Simplified, there are three types of FIBA 3x3 endorsed events:

  • Pro circuit events: For city-based pro teams
  • National team events: For national teams of basketball federations.
  • Grassroots events: Open to all teams, all ages and all skill levels

All events operate under the same in-court rules and off-court regulations, creating an interconnected competition pyramid. A team might get together into a local recreational event, hit it off - both chemistry- and result-wise - and later find themselves competing as FIBA 3x3 professionals in the world tour. A 3x3 national team coach may spot a basketball prospect from the world tour and make a player’s dream to play for her/his country possible in a new and exciting way. Or basketball crazy people just want to do what’s most fun in basketball - just play.
