It’s global. It’s urban. It’s a show. The FISU University World Cup 3×3 event has become one of FISU’s most exciting and popular sports events. With its rightful home on the university campus, the event and its student-athletes are helping take this format of the game to new heights.
The next edition will take place in October 2022 in Istanbul (Turkey).
3×3 Basketball on the FISU sports programme
FISU’s history in the 3×3 game goes back to just about the official start of the sport itself in 2010; both the first and second FISU World University 3×3 Basketball Championships were attributed in May 2011 to the National University Sports Federation of Serbia and of Brazil, respectively. In 2012 the championship took place in Kragujevac (SRB), 2014 in Salvador (BRA), and from 2015 onwards in Xiamen (CHN).
3×3 Basketball is a game anyone can play, anywhere in the world. With teams composed of three players, plus one possible substitute, it is easy to field a team. All you need is a hoop, a ball, some team-mates and a little competition. There isn’t even a mandatory surface; a tournament can take place on concrete, asphalt or an existing/temporary court. There’s no halftime, no quarters, and the energy levels are at the maximum.
The sport is tailor-made for university students. The games are played outdoors, surrounded by music, entertainment and cheering fans. Each game lasts a maximum of 10 minutes. There’s a 12-second shot clock, ensuring teams take risks by attacking the rim and launching shots deep beyond the perimeter.

The 2022 edition of the FISU University World Cup 3×3 will be moved from the half-courts of Huaqiao University in Xiamen – its home since the beginning of the event in 2015 – to Istanbul (Turkey).
