Competition Format

The eight participating teams play a standard knock-out round which starts at the quarter-finals stage. The FIBA 3x3 Individual World Ranking is used to determine the teams’ seeding. The ranking points of each team’s 3 best players on the cut-off date are added up. Teams are then ranked based on their total team ranking and seeded as follows:

  • 1 vs 8
  • 4 vs 5
  • 3 vs 6
  • 2 vs 7

The final standings are calculated according to the FIBA 3x3 rules of the game. If teams are tied (in the case of the FIBA 3x3 All Stars) then the following criteria is taken into account:

1. Most points scored
2. Highest seeding
