About the event

The FIBA 3x3 U23 World Cup is an annual competition, launched in 2018.

The second edition takes place in Lanzhou, China on October 2-6, 2019.

The very best from around the world do battle in five different events: the men's 3x3 tournament, the women's 3x3 tournament, the Shoot-Out Contest (mixed), the Skills Contest (women) and last but not least the Dunk Contest (men).

Contrary to the "open" network of tournaments (which includes the FIBA 3x3 World Tour), players taking part in the FIBA 3x3 U23 World Cup do not create the team themselves but instead are selected by their national federations to represent their countries.

In order to be eligible, players who compete in the 3x3 U23 World Cup must be registered on play.fiba3x3.basketball and have the nationality of the country they represent.

Any player born on January 1, 1996 or after this date can participate in the 2019 edition. This said, all players must turn at least 16 years old in 2019 and a minimum of 2 players have to turn 19 or older in the same year.
