National Team Events

The FIBA 3x3 World Cups are the top national-team competition in 3x3 basketball. The players are selected by each national federation according to the FIBA Central Board-approved regulations where the 3x3 Federation Ranking is the main criteria to identify the qualified teams.

Men's and women's competitions are always held simultaneously and for the exact same number of teams at the World Cups. In addition to team competitions, individual contests are staged as well. Open World Cups and U18 World Cups are held on an annual basis. Olympic Tournaments are considered as World Cups (thus Youth Olympic Games are considered as U18 World Cups).
