Participating teams[edit]

The FIBA 3x3 Federation Ranking on 17 January 2018 was used as basis to determine the participating FIBA member associations.[5] The hosts, the Philippines, qualified automatically for both the men's and women's events, while the defending champions, Serbia for men's and Russia for women's, also qualified automatically. The top 20 teams in the men's and women's Federation Rankings qualified with the following conditions: a maximum of 10 teams from a single continent could qualify and at least 30 FIBA member associations must participate.[6] The 40 qualifying teams (20 each for the men's and women's tournaments) had to confirm their participation by 30 November 2017.[1] FIBA confirmed the participation of 37 member associations on 18 January 2018.[7]
