HONG KONG (China)—The FIBA 3×3 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 3×3 men’s teams will battle it out for the World Tour title.

A regular host of major basketball events, the FIBA 3×3 World Tour Final in Hong Kong will culminate an action-packed World Tour season and showcase the world’s best 3×3 players. The FIBA 3×3 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 3×3 World Tour Final in Hong Kong is a testament to the city’s growing importance in the 3×3 community and its ability to host world-class sporting events,” said Alex Sanchez, Managing Director of FIBA 3×3. “After the success of our World Tour events here in the past two years and the recent FIBA 3×3 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 3×3 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 3×3 season,” Wong said.
