SINGAPORE - Excitement is already building for the FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup 2024, which is poised to kick off in spectacular style, marking the beginning of an exciting year for the world's number one urban team sport.

"We are thrilled to return to Singapore for the third edition of the FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup, kicking off what promises to be a monumental year. Starting the season in this vibrant city is truly special, and the anticipation is building as the best 3x3 players and teams in Oceania and Asia prepare to engage in fierce competition," said Alex Sanchez, FIBA 3x3 Director.
“Building on the success of the past two editions of FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup and the inaugural 2023 FIBA Intercontinental Cup, we are excited to bring the basketball action back to our local and regional fans. Organising such international events allows Singapore to showcase our capabilities and elevate the profile of the sport locally and regionally, thereby inspiring more youths to pursue the sport competitively. At the same time, it provides our Team Singapore athletes a valuable opportunity to compete alongside the best teams in the region in front of a home crowd. We are immensely proud of our athletes’ fighting spirit in the last two seasons, and look forward to another exciting basketball season this March,” said Marcus Tan, Chief of Sport Development Group, Sport Singapore.
