The 2015 FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final will be staged outdoors at the Corniche, a high-traffic leisure area situated on the shores of the Arab Gulf on 15-16 October.
The event will be organised in cooperation with FIBA by the Abu Dhabi Sports Council together with EXTRA International Sport and Sport Arena, an international promoter who has been one of the pioneers in the development of 3x3.
The FIBA 3x3 World Tour is the pinnacle event of an 'open' network of FIBA-endorsed 3x3 tournaments, which sees teams of four players – regardless of their nationality – representing their city in various events, eventually making their way to the world stage.
The event extends beyond the game with non-stop music and the presence of top streets artists in a genuine urban culture festival, bringing basketball to the people in the heart of the cities against a backdrop of the most iconic cityscapes on the planet.
2015 will be an eventful year for 3x3 with the fourth edition of the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships in Hungary on 4-7 June, the inclusion of 3x3 in the European Games in Azerbaijan on 23-26 June and the third edition of the FIBA 3x3 All Stars in Qatar in December.
The full calendar of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour will be announced at a later stage.
