The third stop of the FIBA 3x3 Women's Series 2022 will be played in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, on July 1-2.
Exciting, urban and innovative, 3x3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. Steered by FIBA, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.
It was played successfully for the first time in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and since then has benefited from the launch of a yearly city-based FIBA 3x3 World Tour and national-team FIBA 3x3 World & Continental Cups.
On July 24, 2021, 3x3 made its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games.
