Qatar Basketball Federation to host Fiba 3x3 All Stars

FIBA and the Qatar Basketball Federation (QBF) have extended the contract to organise the FIBA 3x3 All Stars for an additional five years, until 2020.

The FIBA 3x3 All Stars is the season-ending event of 3x3 basketball and the most lucrative one for the players with USD $120,000 in prize money. The first edition was staged in Doha on 12 December 2013 and saw Team Brezovica (SLO) win the title.
Novi Sad (SRB) dominated the 2014 edition in a packed venue, located in Katara with the Doha skyline on the horizon for the second time.

The past two editions of the event have also included school and hospital visits as well as clinics for referees and young players.

"We are delighted to renew our partnership with the Qatar Basketball Federation," FIBA Secretary General and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member Patrick Baumann said.

"Thanks to H.E. Sheikh Saoud Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani's visionary leadership, QBF have been a pioneer in the development of 3x3, not only winning the 2014 FIBA 3x3 World Championships but also establishing the FIBA 3x3 All Stars as one of the most prestigious FIBA 3x3 events in the world."

The 2015 edition will feature some new activities, including the FIBA 3x3 Gala Dinner and the FIBA 3x3 Awards, where the discipline’s best players and organisers will be honoured.
