The participants are the hosts and the top 7 teams in the FIBA 3x3 Federation Ranking (on November 1, 2018), which are not yet qualified for the FIBA 3x3 World Cup. If a zone had a Zone Cup and the Zone Cup winners are not yet qualified for the World Cup, they automatically make it to the World Cup Qualifier and fewer teams qualify based on the ranking.
The top 3 teams in each gender will secure their ticket to the FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2019, which will be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands on June 18-23.
This World Cup Qualifier is the very first event qualifying - though indirectly - to the Olympic Games. The top 3 teams per gender at the World Cup 2019 will indeed be guaranteed a spot in an Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
