Our Third Success
The World Hoops Penang 3X3 Challenger returned for its third edition in 2018. Word had spread, and this tournament, having achieved two years of excellence, had become one of the hottest events in the country and the FIBA 3X3 community.
The brackets featured multiple top 10 teams, who brought their competitive rivalries to our stage. We attracted perennial all-stars, reigning champions, and the biggest superstars of the World Tour. Elite professionals from across Europe and Asia came to Penang and showcased the highest level of basketball, entertaining thousands of fans. In the final, the veterans of Piran defeated Michael “Money in the Bank” Hicks’ Gdansk, which earned them a second Penang Challenger title.
Throughout an action-packed weekend, huge crowds gathered to witness the games and interact with players, creating an incredible atmosphere. The event truly reached another height through not only the quality of play on the court but also the engagement from people in our local community and around the world.
