Championship Format

As there are 16 teams in the latest edition (2017), a Qualifying Draw is needed to bring it down to 12 teams per gender. The 6 lowest-ranked teams at cut-off (with Malaysia, as hosts, as a exception) will play a qualifying draw during the morning of Day 1. Teams are split in pools of 3 and both pool winners advance to the Main Draw of the U18 Asia Cup.

In the Main Draw, teams are split in 4 pools of 3 teams per gender. The pools are not determined through a draw, but automatically created through the 3x3 Federation Ranking of the participating countries as of 1 March 2017. All teams play every other in their respective pools. The best 2 in each pool qualify for the quarter-finals.

In case teams are tied in the pools, the tie-breakers are as follows:

1. Most wins (or win ratio in case of unequal number of games in inter-pool comparison);  
2. Head-to-head confrontation (only taking win/loss into account);
3. Most points scored in average (without considering winning scores of forfeits).

If teams are still tied after those three steps, the one(s) with the highest seeding win(s) the tie-breaker.

After the pools, the teams play knock-out games all the way to the final.

Pool games are played on Days 1 & 2, and the knock-out games on Day 3.

The format is subject to change based on the number of teams participating in that year.

Significance of the event

Contrary to the "open" network of tournaments (which includes the FIBA 3x3 World Tour), players taking part in the FIBA 3x3 U18 Asia Cup do not create the team themselves, but instead are selected by their national federations to represent their countries. The tournament is a stand-alone event where the winning team earns points for its federation. These points are then used to calculate the FIBA 3x3 ranking for the federation.

The FIBA 3x3 Federation Ranking is calculated by adding up the FIBA 3x3 Individual World Ranking* points of the Top 100 nationals with a confirmed 3x3planet.com account. It not only rewards the elite performances of the players but also the 3x3 activity in the territory of each National Federation. It is calculated daily at 12h00 UTC.

The position in the 3x3 Federation Ranking is driven by the number of players and their playing frequency. The more events are organised the more likely players will accumulate points and increase the national federation's standing in the Ranking.

It is the main criterion used to identify the teams qualified to the FIBA 3x3 World Cup (open and U18) and the Youth Olympic Games.
