About the FIBA 3x3 Project
In a bid to make 3x3 basketball an Olympic sport by the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, FIBA recently structured the discipline. As part of this project, FIBA has created a worldwide sports community through a network of hundreds of organisers, thousands of tournaments and millions of players. The online community 3x3planet.com interconnects all of these parties/actors thanks to the latest digital technology. Members of 3x3Planet.com can interact using their computers or mobile phones via the Mobile App which allows them to teamup and organise pick-up games with other players nearby, register for official tournaments, record results of their games and climb up the FIBA 3x3 World Ranking.
