DOHA (Qatar) – The tenth edition of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour will begin in Doha, Qatar on March 26-27, 2021.

The number one competition of the FIBA 3x3 professional circuit will be back just three months after Team Riga (LAT) won their first title.

This will mark the second year in a row the World Tour makes a stop in Doha, in the Al Gharafa Sports Complex, a state-of-the-art outdoors venue.

The event will be hosted by the Qatar Basketball Federation, with the support of the Qatar Olympic Committee.

All the health and safety measures requested by local and national authorities and the Guidelines for the Return to Basketball, developed by the FIBA Medical Advisory Group (MAG), which were successfully introduced in the FIBA 3x3 World Tour 2020, will be implemented once again. The decision to have fans at the venue will be taken closer to the event.

Fourteen teams are expected to compete in the World Tour opener, including the top 8 teams in the FIBA 3x3 Team Ranking (at the end of the team validation period, meaning February 15) and the hosts.

More Masters will be announced at a later stage.
