Eight nations are set to compete at the final of the International Basketball Association (FIBA) 3x3 Women’s Series in Bucharest, which begins tomorrow.

The top seven teams in the season’s standings plus hosts Romania will be playing, with the winners of the leg set to take home the trophy, as opposed to the best team in the season standings, as happened previously. 

Russia, Germany, Canada and hosts Romania form Pool A while Pool B comprises The Netherlands, Mongolia, Poland and Austria.

France, champions in 2019, will not be able to defend their title as they did not make this year’s final.

Meanwhile, the latest round of the men's FIBA 3x3 World Tour takes place at Prague Castle, a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage site.

None of the teams that won World Tour events this season are in the field meaning a new winner of this latest Masters event is guaranteed.

Serbian side Liman are listed as top seeds for this round and feature in Pool A, alongside Saudi Arabian side Jeddah and Russian outfit Gagarin.

The first round of the World Tour in Doha in Qatar was won by Dutch side Amsterdam Talent & Pro, with Puerto Rico team San Juan victorious in the second at Swiss venue Lausanne.
