The event will be managed by the CBF in cooperation with the city of Prague on Venceslas Square, an iconic UNESCO world heritage site.

Prague has played host to the World Tour since 2013. The event has been a must for the most successful World Tour teams. The winners of the Prague Masters have systematically reached the title game of the World Tour Final. In 2015, three of the top four teams at the World Tour Final had competed in Prague earlier in the season.

The Prague Masters will take place on 6-7 August in 2016.

The entire 2016 FIBA 3x3 World Tour season schedule will be announced on Tuesday 19 April.
