October 26, 2022 | in the University World Cup 3×3
From October 27 to 29, Istanbul will host the FISU 3×3 University Basketball World Cup with 24 teams (12 for each gender).
The event was moved from the Chinese city of Xiamen, where it was held from 2015 to 2019 – it was postponed to 2020 and 2021.
In 3×3 basketball, teams consist of three players plus one possible substitute. The tournament can be played on different types of surface: concrete, asphalt or an existing/temporary court. Played outdoors, surrounded by music, entertainment and cheering fans, matches last a maximum of 10 minutes – there are no breaks or quarters.
The defending champions (from the 2019 edition) are Tsinghua University (CHN) in the women’s competition and Paulista University (BRA) in the men’s category. While the Chinese university will not participate this year, the Brazilian team won the Americas continental qualifier and will logically be one of the main favorites in Istanbul.
