8 Feb 2018

DEBRECEN (FIBA 3x3 U18 Europe Cup) - The FIBA 3x3 U18 Europe Cup returns to Debrecen, Hungary on August 31 - September 2, 2018.

The second largest city in Hungary will play host to the event for the third consecutive time after successful editions in 2016 and 2017.

Debrecen has become one of the capitals of 3x3. Besides the FIBA 3x3 U18 Europe Cup, the city was the playground of the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cup in 2015 and the FIBA 3x3 World Tour (since 2016). It will also host the FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup in 2019.

Kossuth Square's Reformed Great Church will continue to be one of the most iconic backdrops of the 3x3 season.

Eleven men's and 11 women's teams will earn their ticket via 3 qualifiers - which will be announced at a later stage - to join the Hungarian hosts.

Hungary's women and Belgium's men are the reigning champions.
