JEDDAH (Saudi Arabia) - The field is set for the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final 2020, which will take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on December 18-19, 2020.
To qualify, teams had to finish inside the Top 12 in the World Tour season standings after the last Masters. Following Riga's title defense at the Doha Masters, we now can announce the finalists.
Here's the list of the 12 participating teams sorted by tour standings:
1. Riga (LAT) - 320 pts
2. Liman (SRB) - 320 pts

11. Ulaanbaatar MMC Energy (MGL) - 53 pts
12. Amsterdam (NED) - 50pts
Amsterdam and Princeton were tied with 50 points and the same winning percentage and the Dutch qualified based on the third tie-breaker, points average.
