Bucharest to host FIBA 3×3 Europe Cup 2018

The fourth edition of the FIBA 3×3 Europe Cup will be staged in Bucharest, Romania on September 14-16, 2018.

The Romanian capital will play host to the most important 3×3 national team competition in Europe for a record third time in four editions, cementing its legacy as one of the capitals of 3×3.

Romania shined in previous editions: men won gold in 2014 while women struck silver in 2016.

The event will be hosted by the Romanian Basketball Federation and organized by Sport Arena Streetball.

The exact venue will be announced at a later date.

Fifty-nine teams (men and women combined) from 33 countries have registered to earn their ticket to the FIBA 3×3 Europe Cup, a significant growth compared to last year’s edition.

In 2017, 46 teams from 26 countries participated.

These teams will compete in one of the three qualifiers held in Escaldes-Engordany (Andorra) on June 23-24, Poitiers (France) on June 29-30 and Constanta (Romania) on June 30 – July 1.

Twelve men’s teams and 12 women’s teams will compete in Bucharest on September 14-16.

Russia’s women and Latvia’s men are the reigning European champions following their heroics in Amsterdam, Netherlands on July 7-9, 2017.
