As previously announced during the previous edition in China on 15 October the logo of the 3x3 World Cup features an elephant, a tribute to the 12-metre high mechanical elephant which stands in the Machines of the Isle.
It also stars one male and one female player, a reminder that both categories compete at the FIBA 3x3 World Cup.
The press conference was staged at the Hôtel National des Invalides and included presentations from FFBB representative Richard Billant and Perrine Le Leuch, captain of the 3x3 French women’s national team.
"It is amazing to hold the 3x3 World Cup in France," Billant said.
"This will allow us to raise awareness about this very spectacular and short-paced game."
It will mark the first time FFBB hosts a basketball World Cup.
FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2012 silver medallist Perrine Le Leuch was equally as excited as she explained:
"It is an honour to play in front of the French fans and my family. We will introduce people to the world of 3x3," the number 19 3x3 player in the world explained.
"We were very successful back in 2012 and we believe we can do great things again next year!"
