ORECA Group to organize FIBA 3x3 World Tour and Women's Series in France
MARSEILLE (France) - The FIBA 3x3 World Tour and Women's Series 2023 will be visiting Marseille for the first time this year.
Hosted and supported by the city of Marseille, the urban event will be held at the Palais des Sports from June 29 to July 1, bringing together the FIBA 3x3 World Tour 2023 and the Women's Series. Locals will get the chance to see this new Olympic discipline’s most talented players on the court.
With the support of the French Basketball Federation, ORECA Events will be in charge of organizing this three-day competition and the urban show that comes with it. Everybody is invited! The best professional 3x3 players will be competing for prize money and the pride of representing their cities, collecting points in their race to the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Off the court, ORECA Events will be developing different activities and experiences, beyond basketball itself, looking to engage the local population through sports and urban culture – one of the city’s main goals.
This GESI-certified event (“Great International Sports Event”) will also be promoting gender equality. Indeed, the French round of the competition will also include a 3x3 Women’s Series Stop, that is to say, the number one competition on the 3x3 women’s professional circuit. A great opportunity to see France’s women's team – FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2022 winners and 2-time 3x3 Europe Cup winners!
