Competition format

The Crelan FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2022 features 20 men's and 20 women's teams.

They are divided into 4 pools of 5 and seeded automatically based on the 3x3 Federation Ranking. The seeding order is done in the "snake format" as follows:

Each team plays the other 4 in their respective pools. The top teams from each pool qualify directly for the quarter-finals while the 2nd and 3rd of each pool compete in play-in eighth-finals. 

With the exception of the bronze-medal game, there will be no classification games. Overall standings (places 5 to 20) and pool standings are determined by the following 3x3 standings rules:

If teams are tied after the first step, refer to the next one – and so on.  
1.    Most wins (or win ratio in case of unequal number of games in inter-pool comparison);  
2.    Head-to-head confrontation (only taking win/loss into account and applies within a pool only);
3.    Most points scored in average (without considering winning scores of forfeits). 
If teams are still tied after those three steps, the one(s) with the highest seeding win(s) the tie-breaker.

On top of the men's and the women's team event, there is a dunk contest.

All three competitions will be played with the official 3x3 ball.
