Hong Kong to host FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final 2024

"VAN" (Sports Desk - 18.05.2024) :: The FIBA 3x3 World Tour 2024 season grand finale will be held in Hong Kong for the first time ever on November 23-24. The world's best 3x3 men's teams will battle it out for the World Tour title.

A regular host of major basketball events, the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final in Hong Kong will culminate an action-packed World Tour season and showcase the world's best 3x3 players. The FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final is the ultimate World Tour stop as it features the best teams, and serves as the last stop of the season. The top 11 teams in the season standings will automatically qualify for the Hong Kong Final. Meanwhile, the 12th-ranked team, the host team (Hong Kong), and the team with the most combined Challenger and World Tour wins (excluding those already qualified) will battle for the remaining spot in a play-in event.

"The 13th edition of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final in Hong Kong is a testament to the city's growing importance in the 3x3 community and its ability to host world-class sporting events," said Alex Sanchez, Managing Director of FIBA 3x3. "After the success of our World Tour events here in the past two years and the recent FIBA 3x3 Universality Olympic Qualifying Tournament, it was a natural step to bring our biggest pro tour event to this vibrant city."

Kenny Wong, CEO of the Organizing Committee for the World Tour Final, highlighted the city's readiness and enthusiasm for hosting the event. "Hong Kong is thrilled to welcome the world's best 3x3 teams and their fans to our city. With its iconic backdrop and passionate basketball community, we are set to provide a spectacular setting for the pinnacle of the 3x3 season."

This year's World Tour features 17 stops around the globe, with Ub Huishan NE (SRB) aiming to defend their title as the two-time reigning champions. As teams prepare for the intense competition, all eyes will be on Hong Kong, where the world of 3x3 will converge for an unforgettable finale.
