The world’s top 3×3 players will compete across eight men’s and eight women’s teams during seven days of thrilling competition. Held at the iconic Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, 3×3 players will showcase their talents against a backdrop of some of Paris’ most iconic landmarks including the Grand Palais, Champs-Élysées, and The Louvre.  While COVID-19 restrictions prevented fans attending the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, spectators in Paris will be able to fully experience the excitement of 3×3 Basketball at the Games and play a central role in creating an unforgettable festival atmosphere. 

All eight teams play each other in a single pool over the first three and a half days. On day four, a play-in will be introduced for teams that finish 3rd to 6th. 

The top two teams advance directly to the Semi Finals, while teams placing 7th and 8th will be eliminated. The remaining six teams compete in the play-in on August 4, with the Semi Finals and medal games all taking place on the last day of competition, on August 5.

The 3×3 competition shares the vibrant Place de la Concorde with skateboarding, BMX freestyle, and breaking, promising an electrifying urban atmosphere for players and spectators alike. The open-air arena, with a capacity of 4,700, will be a stage for world class sport and passionate fans.  

On June 9, 2017, 3×3 was added to the Olympic program, debuting at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The first official 3×3 event was held in 2010 at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. It took just seven years for the sport to make the leap from the streets to the Olympic Games.
