Red Bull Announces Third Season of Red Bull 3X as New Era of 3X3 Basketball Takes Shape

  • Date:
    Jun 20, 2022


On the heels of the just-completed Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals at the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame where Team Harlem and Texafornia took the men’s and women’s titles, a new season of Red Bull 3X kicks off with seven elite-level qualifiers around the country, starting with a June 25 showdown in Memphis, Tennessee. For the first time ever, USA Basketball 3x3 FIBA World Tour and Women’s Series team are expected to make appearances at select Red Bull 3X qualifiers throughout the summer.


Red Bull 3X is an event series in partnership with USA Basketball focused on building an elite pathway for men’s and women’s players who have a goal of competing at the highest levels of 3x3 basketball, including the 3x3 World Cup and the men’s and women’s FIBA 3x3 pro tours. Momentum is strong after a milestone moment for 3x3 basketball last year when the sport shined as a first-time discipline at the Tokyo Olympics, highlighted by the USA 3x3 Women’s National Team taking gold.


“Red Bull 3X is crucial to the growth of women’s 3x3 in the states because it allows more access to the game to a wide variety of players, particularly those who are home from overseas and want to be playing throughout the summer,” said Blake Dietrick, 2021 3x3 AmeriCup gold medalist with USA Basketball. “Red Bull 3X is paving the way for 3x3 player development and acting as a 3x3 incubator, allowing players to hone their skills in this unique game while also staying ready for 5-on-5 opportunities.”


Through the seven qualifying tournaments of Red Bull 3X, players compete to accumulate enough individual FIBA points with the goal of moving on to the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Regionals in the Fall of 2022, and then to the 2023 Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals, which will be used to identify a new pipeline of talent for 3x3. Interested players can head to for more information and to register.
