A FIBA 3x3 Challenger is a FIBA 3x3 World Tour Qualifier comprised of one stand-alone, international tournament with at least USD 5,000 prize money limited to 16 teams.

Some of these teams are invited including at least 3 teams which participated in the World Tour the previous year and the others earn a ticket to the Challenger by winning one of the many qualifying events (can be a stand-alone tournament or a tour), named FIBA 3x3 Satellite.
