MONTREAL (Canada) - Ub (SRB) took home their second FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters in a row in Montreal, Canada after defeating Amsterdam Talent&Pro (NED) in the final on September 4-5, 2021.

In the individual contests, Piotr 'Grabo' Grabowski (POL) won the Podium Productions Dunk Contest while Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Karlis Lasmanis (Riga, LAT) dominated the Wilson Shoot-out Contest.
All the health and safety measures requested by local and national authorities and the Guidelines for the Return to Basketball, developed by the FIBA Medical Advisory Group (MAG), which were successfully introduced last season, were implemented once again.

Exciting, urban and innovative, 3x3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. Steered by FIBA, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.
It was played successfully for the first time in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and since then has benefited from the launch of a yearly city-based FIBA 3x3 World Tour and national-team FIBA 3x3 World & Continental Cups.
On July 24, 2021, 3x3 made its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games.
Wilson is the Global Ball and Apparel Partner and Tissot the Official Timekeeper of FIBA 3x3.
FIBA 3x3 events are played on Enlio floors with Wilson balls, Schelde backstops, and the Magic Sky canopy system.
