3x3 Basketball Paris 2024 Olympic Games Schedule Announced

PARIS (France) -  The official schedule for the highly anticipated 3x3 Basketball Olympic Games is now available. 3x3 will return for the second time to the Games for the Paris 2024 Summer Olympic Games from 30 July to 5 August 2024. 

The world's top 3x3 players will compete across eight men’s and eight women’s teams during seven days of thrilling competition. Held at the iconic Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, 3x3 players will showcase their talents against a backdrop of some of Paris’ most iconic landmarks including the Grand Palais, Champs-Élysées, and The Louvre.  While COVID-19 restrictions prevented fans attending the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, spectators in Paris will be able to fully experience the excitement of 3x3 Basketball at the Games and play a central role in creating an unforgettable festival atmosphere. 

 All eight teams play each other in a single pool over the first three and a half days. On day four, a play-in will be introduced for teams that finish 3rd to 6th. 

The top two teams advance directly to the Semi Finals, while teams placing 7th and 8th will be eliminated. The remaining six teams compete in the play-in, with the Semi Finals and medal games all taking place on the last day of competition, on 5 August.   



The 3x3 competition shares the vibrant Place de la Concorde with skateboarding, BMX freestyle, and breaking, promising an electrifying urban atmosphere for players and spectators alike. The open-air arena, with a capacity of 4,700, will be a stage for world class sport and passionate fans.  

 On 9 June, 2017, 3x3 was added to the Olympic program, debuting at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The first official 3x3 event was held in 2010 at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. It took just seven years for the sport to make the leap from the streets to the Olympic Games.

Exciting, urban and innovative, 3x3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the most thrilling urban sport. Steered by FIBA, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court. 3x3 made its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
