   from outside the arc

Survey results from FIBA 3×3 World Tour

events in seven different cities around the world:
• 65% were under the age of 30

• 96% say they would recommend the event to a friend

Olympics Qualification Rules
• NBA players are unlikely to play 3×3 in the Olympics because the only way to qualify is by competing in a       
   sufficient number of FIBA-endorsed 3×3 tournaments
• On an Olympic 3×3 team, all four players must have accumulated enough qualification points to be
   ranked in the Top 50 in their respective countries for 3×3; two of them must be in the Top 10
• Only tournaments that use all of the official FIBA 3×3 rules count toward Olympic qualification
