China will have more

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has made no secret of the fact: the future of 3×3 will be played in China. A very immediate future. Ignacio Soriano, who is in charge of events and partnerships for the sport within the federation, told Xinhua that the World Tour calendar will be making more frequent stops in China from next season. “We are going to organise three more World Tour tournaments between now and the end of the year, he announced. With seven challengers and three women’s series, China has hosted events from every circuit on the international 3×3 basketball calendar.” Also according to Ignacio Soriano, China plans to create next year a super league. “We have very ambitious plans to further develop the 3×3 offering in the country, he continued. Next year, China will receive at least as many, and perhaps even more, international tournaments than in 2023.”
