MIES (FIBA 3x3 World Tour) - No less than 6 FIBA 3x3 World Tour Qualifiers will be staged this coming weekend (25-26 July).
With the start of the flagship FIBA 3x3 event – the FIBA 3x3 World Tour – coming next week on 1-2 August in Manila, Philippines, the competition to earn a ticket to the World Tour intensifies.
By the end of the weekend, seven more World Tour teams will be known, with 3 of them playing at the Prague Masters (8-9 August), 2 in Lausanne (28-29 August) and 1 in Mexico DF (9-10 September).
More than half of the teams playing at the Moscow Open have featured in the World Tour in the past, including reigning champs, Novi Sad Al Wahda, who will however play without number one 3x3 player in the world Dusan Domovic Bulut, who is nursing a shoulder injury contracted at the European Games. You can follow the event on 24 and 25 July on the official free livestream.
Just like the Moscow Open, the Belgian Quest Final (25 July) and the Streetball Italian Quest Final (26 July) will qualify teams to the Prague Masters.
No teams have yet qualified for the Lausanne Masters. This will change quite suddenly with the winners of the DDB 3x3 Quest (Germany) and the Open de France 3x3 Quest both happening on 25 July.
Last but not least, USA Basketball hosts a 3x3 National Tournament over the weekend and the winners will earn a trip to the Mexico DF Masters, a rare chance for 3-time FIBA 3x3 World Tour participants Corey Campbell and Derek Griffin to continue to make 3x3 history.
