After a successful FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup 2022, the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup will take place in Singapore for the next three editions (2023, 2024 and 2025).
Just two months removed from the 2022 edition, which featured a record 51 teams from 29 different countries, Sport Singapore and FIBA announced that Singapore will continue to host the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup for the next three years.
“After such an exciting return to Singapore this year, we couldn’t be happier to establish the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup in the country long term,” FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis said. “This will allow us to build an even greater and more engaged community of fans in Singapore and solidify the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup as one of the highlights of the 3×3 season.”
The next edition will be staged in the Singapore Sports Hub from March 27 to April 2, marking the first major milestone of the 3×3 season in 2023. In addition to the competition, fans can look forward to community activations organized in conjunction with the event happening across the Sports Hub precinct.
“Sport Singapore is excited to build on the success of the 2022 edition for the next three years, and we are committed to growing the local and regional interest in 3×3 together with FIBA. This event at the Sports Hub next year, promises to be a pulsating live and digital spectator experience. Watch out for it!” said Marcus Tan, Chief, Sport Development Group.
China’s women and Australia’s men won the fifth edition of the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup on July 10, 2022. The winners of the 2023 edition will earn a ticket to one of the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments for Paris 2024.
Over the 5-day competition, the event attracted more than 4,000 spectators with an estimated digital outreach of 35 million.
