Basketball at the 2020 Summer Olympics – Men's 3x3 qualification

Eight teams will qualify for the Olympic 3x3 men's basketball tournament.

Contents

FormatEdit

Four teams will qualify based on the 1 November 2019 world ranking list. Japan, as the host nation, is guaranteed one quota spot.[1]

Three teams will qualify through the 2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT). This will be a 20-team tournament. NOCs already qualified through the ranking list will not be eligible to play in the OQT. The 20 teams for the OQT will consist of the OQT host, the three highest-placed teams at the 2019 FIBA 3x3 World Cup, and 16 teams on the world ranking list (with Japan being guaranteed a spot if not already qualified for the Olympics). The first 10 quota spots for the OQT are open to any team that has not qualified for the men's Olympic tournament, but the remaining 10 spots are subject to two restrictions. First, an NOC that has a team qualified for the women's tournament is excluded from these restricted quota places. Second, no more than 10 NOCs from any given continent may compete at the OQT.[1]

The final quota place will be determined through the 2020 FIBA Universality-driven Olympic Qualifying Tournament (UOQT). This will be a 6-team tournament. NOCs already qualified through the ranking list or the OQT will not be eligible to play in the UOQT. Further, any NOC that has had a men's or women's team play in the basketball at the 2012 Summer Olympics or basketball at the 2016 Summer Olympics tournaments is ineligible for the UOQT. The 6 teams for the UOQT will consist of the UOQT host and 5 teams on the world ranking list (with Japan being guaranteed a spot if not already qualified for the Olympics; Japan is eligible for the UOQT despite having a women's team play basketball in the 2016 Summer Olympics).[1]
