28 Nov 2022

KRAKOW (Poland) - The best European teams will compete at the European Games 2023 in Krakow on June 21 - July 2, 2023.

Both Crelan FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2022 winners, Serbia's men and France's women will enter the European Games as the teams to beat after winning a historic double last year as they also won the 3x3 Europe Cup in Graz (Austria).

The French women’s 3x3 team are the reigning European Games champions after their triumph at Minsk 2019. The team narrowly missed out on a medal in Tokyo, finishing in fourth place, but will look to hold off number two-ranked Germany and number four Lithuania in what will be a highly competitive women’s event.

Host country Poland will look to harness the home support to reach the podium at the European Games, with their number 11 ranked men’s team and number 10 ranked women’s team more than capable of causing an upset.

There are 16 countries in each draw, with every team currently ranked in the top 25 in the world. This is set to make for an enthralling tournament, which will mark the third successive appearance for 3x3 at the European Games.

The list of qualified teams is the following:

MEN: Serbia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Latvia, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Austria, Israel, Slovenia, Spain, Czech Republic, Romania, Estonia.

WOMEN: France, Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic, Israel, Switzerland, Austria, Ukraine, Estonia, Greece, Latvia.
