7 Mar 2022

DOHA (Qatar) - Iconic 3x3 location Doha will host the FIBA 3x3 World Cup Qualifier Asia 2022 in March 25-26 with one men's and women's spot up for grabs for this year's showpiece event in Antwerp.

Six teams in each gender will be fighting for the coveted last ticket to the FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2022 during the two-day event. Host Qatar, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan and Iran will field teams in both men's and women's categories. Malaysia round out the men's draw while Uzbekistan complete the women's field.

For the very first time, the winners of the 3x3 Continental Cups qualified for the next World Cup. The World Cup Qualifier Asia was announced after the 3x3 Asia Cup could not be staged in 2021 due to the COVID pandemic.

The event is held at the Al Gharafa Sports Complex, a state-of-the-art sport venue. Doha is a much-loved 3x3 destination having held Masters events in the past three seasons of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour.

The winners will get the last tickets to the FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2022, which will take place for the first time in Belgium's famous port city of Antwerp on June 21-26. The exact location will be ‘Groenplaats’, one of the most iconic squares in the city's historic district.

It will be the seventh edition of the FIBA 3x3 World Cup and first since 2019 when USA won the men's gold medal and China claimed women's gold.
