FIBA to donate to charity for every dunk at FIBA 3x3 World Tour Mexico City Masters

MEXICO CITY (FIBA 3x3 World Tour) - FIBA will donate 100 USD to the Mexican Red Cross for every dunk completed at the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Mexico City Masters on September 30 - October 1.

Since 2015, Mexico City has successfully hosted a World Tour event every year. Following the tragic earthquake, which hit Mexico on September 19, FIBA thoroughly discussed the relevance of holding the event this year with the local authorities and their willingness to bring their support to the people of Mexico.

The Mexican Red Cross is an NGO affiliated with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and has been one of the most active groups taking part in earthquake recovery and rescue efforts.

For those not attending the games in the Perisur Shopping Mall (the entrance is free), pool games will start at 12.10pm local time (GMT-5) on Saturday live on FIBA 3x3's official YouTube channel. The top-two placed teams from each pool advance to a standard knock-out round which starts at the quarter-finals stage, from 1.15pm local time on Sunday.
