By Sree Varma | December 19, 2018
FIBA and TriCon Events signed a three-year partnership to bring the 3×3 World Tour to Montreal until 2021.
The city will host a FIBA 3×3 World Tour Masters from September 7-8, 2019.
Montreal thus becomes the third Canadian city to host the basketball tournament, after Saskatoon since 2017 and Edmonton this year.
“Canada has become a hotbed for 3×3 and we are thrilled about the city of Montreal’s decision to host the FIBA 3×3 World Tour in 2019,” said FIBA 3×3 Managing Director Alex Sanchez.
“More Olympic host cities such as Beijing, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Mexico have staged the FIBA 3×3 World Tour in previous years. Montreal and 3×3 have so much in common: dynamic, urban and multicultural. We are looking forward to an exciting event and a genuine urban culture party in this iconic city next year.”
TriCon Events President Patrice Brunet said: “With this partnership, TriCon Events continues to build and deliver exciting international sports events to Canada since 2016, with no better backdrop than the city of Montreal. The whole team is eager to host some of the best basketball players in the world, and have them experience Montreal hospitality for the next years.”
