First Stop on the FIBA 3X3 World Tour
The World Hoops Penang 3X3 Challenger is the second-highest ranked tournament on the 3X3 World Tour. It is the starting point for professional teams in their journey to win the World Tour Finals. Our Challengers have sent players to the Utsunomiya Masters (Japan), the Hyderabad Masters (India), and the Mexico City Masters (Mexico). Some of these elite teams have gone to win it all.
Thus, the Penang Challenger has consistently attracted the best 3X3 players. We have hosted top 10 teams from Slovenia, Serbia, Russia, Canada, and many other countries. The champions of the past 7 World Tour Finals have all competed on our court, which demonstrates the excellence of our event.
Outreach and Social Responsibility
The Penang Challenger has also been a great opportunity for us to reach out to the public. For youth, we have organized grassroots tournaments during the event for them to experience the competition. For our community, we have actively promoted social responsibility initiatives, such as supporting a greener lifestyle. Because of the extensive appeal of this event, these campaigns have been widely successful.
