Fiba prepares for 3×3’s Olympic bow with new partnership

The International Basketball Federation (Fiba) has agreed a new multi-year partnership with Chinese sports flooring manufacturer Enlio for its 3×3 discipline.

Under the deal, Enlio courts will be used at 3×3 World Cups, as well as the top level of the 3×3 professional circuit – the 3×3 World Tour. Fiba will recommend their use at the Tokyo 2020 summer Olympic Games.

“We are delighted to work with Enlio as 3×3 prepares for its Olympic debut,” Fiba secretary general Andreas Zagklis said.

“Our first experience working together at the Fiba 3×3 Asia Cup and Fiba 3×3 U23 World Cup last year was unanimously acclaimed by federations, players and fans alike. We are confident this partnership will give us a big boost to make 3×3 the highest-paced and one of the most spectacular disciplines at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and beyond.”
