3×3 is an exciting, urban, and inventive team sport that is believed to be the most popular urban team sport in the world. It was modeled by numerous variations of streetball that are played all over the world. On a basketball half-court, two teams, each consisting of three players, compete against one another in games that are governed by FIBA.
It was played for the first time in international competition during the successful 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, and since then, it has profited from the creation of a yearly city-based FIBA 3×3 World Tour as well as national-team FIBA 3×3 World & Continental Cups.
The Olympic debut of the 3×3 competition took place in Tokyo on July 24, 2021.
