ABOUT FIBA 3×3 NATIONS LEAGUE
The FIBA 3×3 Nations League is comprised of 57 different national federations and 11 different conferences. Each conference has six one-day events which includes daily pool play and final. Teams earn tour standing points after each one-day event. The best-ranked team in the standings after the sixth day are declared winners of their conference and qualify for the 2022 FIBA 3×3 Nations League Final in Constanta, Romania, on Sept. 14-16.

ABOUT FIBA 3X3
Different than five-on-five, 3×3 is played on a half-court with a 10-minute game clock and 12-second shot clock. Play is continuous, as teams “clear” the ball behind the 2-point line following a made basket, defensive rebound or steal. The first team to score 21 points via 1-pointer field goals or 2-pointers behind the arc is victorious; or if time expires then the team leading wins.
