3×3 Basketball: The first Malta Championship Tour
The Malta Basketball Association is launching the first official Malta 3X3 Championship Tour. This tour, which is also endorsed by FIBA, will be the first-ever nationwide elite 3×3 basketball competition tour that will make stops between May and September with the winning teams qualifying for the 2017 Final.
The Championship Tour, based over five stops, will tip off this Sunday 21st May in Ta` Qali and conclude on the weekend of 16-17th September 2017 with the first ever 3X3 National Finals.
At each stop, a maximum of sixteen teams may participate in the 3×3 open men competition. Some events are also planned for both the Women Open and Under 18 categories.
Each stop will commence with the pool play and will then be followed by a single elimination playoff sequence which will determine the champion team of that 3X3 stop which will thereby qualify for the final Championship Tour stop in September where the first 3X3 Malta national champions will be determined.
The five stops of the 2017 Malta 3X3 Championship Tour stops are:
- May 21;
- June 24-25;
- July 15-16;
- August 12-13;
- September 02-03;
- September 16-17.
