FISU Oceania is pleased to announce Auckland University of Technology as hosts of the 2023 3×3 World Cup Qualifying Tournament.
The event will be held from 21-22 July.
Previous years editions of the event have not been able to be held in person due to the global pandemic which makes the 2023 edition of the event, all the more special.
“We are excited to be able to hold our 3×3 Continental Qualifying Tournament in person this year”, says Mr David Schmude who is President of FISU Oceania. “The event will not only determine who will represent Oceania at the FISU 3×3 University World Cup, it will also bring students together from our region who might not normally get the opportunity for international competition”, says Mr Schmude.
Auckland was chosen as the host city due to its access to direct flights to the majority of Oceania countries.
“Auckland University of Technology is proud to host the first in person 3×3 qualifying event for FISU Oceania”, says Mr Bruce Meyer, Manager of AUT Recreation, Sport Development and Athlete Support. “The opportunity to host an international event enables us to showcase the best of our university and city to visiting teams and more widely to the FISU community. Our university is proud of its sporting history and achievements and we can’t wait to host the best 3×3 teams from Oceania for the Qualifying Tournament”, adds Mr Meyer.
Teams have been invited from all FISU Oceania member countries and the tournament will include a men’s and women’s competition as well as dunk and free throw competitions for individual players. Winners of the qualifying tournament will represent Oceania at the 3×3 University World Cup being held in October 2023.
