Our Second Success
After an exceptional event in 2016, World Hoops set its sight on even higher goals and aspired to elevate the Penang Challenger to greater heights in 2017. The bar was high, but we rose to the occasion and delivered an exciting weekend of action and entertainment.
Sixteen teams from around the world participated in the 2017 World Hoops Penang 3X3 Challenger, including many ranked in the top 20. The audience was drawn to every moment. Unbelievable dunks, stunning two-point displays, and nail-biting games amazed the crowd. The final between St. Petersburg and Ljubljana, the champions of the 2016 World Tour Finals, did not disappoint. The match went down to the last minute with Ljubljana prevailing and claiming the title.
The Challenger exceeded all expectations and once again was an absolute success. We had captivated thousands of people locally and globally. Sponsors, organizers, players, and fans expressed their enjoyment throughout the event. Penang, now a premier FIBA 3X3 destination, could not wait for 2018.
