Chooks 3×3 to host first-ever FIBA Super Quest


Through the vision of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), the country’s basketball organizing body, the Philippines has made strides to bring 3×3 basketball into the country’s national consciousness.

With the mission of bringing world-class 3×3 basketball to the Philippines, and helping boost the country’s rankings to make it to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and Chooks-to-Go are proud to announce that the country will host the first-ever SUPER QUEST.

The Chooks-to-Go 3×3 Asia-Pacific Super Quest is tentatively scheduled for April 6 to 7 in Manila, Philippines.

“After last year’s success of the FIBA 3×3 World Cup organized by SBP, the initiative of Chooks-to-go to set up a tournament with international teams from Asia-Pacific qualifying to the FIBA 3×3 World Tour is excellent news. It underpins the effort of Chooks-to-go in organizing dozens of local 3×3 events and will accelerate the development of 3×3 in the Philippines,” said FIBA 3×3 Managing Director Alex Sanchez.

“There is no reason why the Philippines cannot have successful teams playing at World Tour level, considering the depth of talent and love for the game in the country.”

The Quest is a multi-tournament qualification tour that ends in a Quest final, the best teams of which qualify to a pre-determined World Tour Masters. In the FIBA 3×3 hierarchy of events, the Quest stops are a level seven (purple) while the Quest Finals are an eight (brown).

“We are looking for tangible ways for the country to find its way to the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments. I know it’s hard at this point but we will try everything,” said Chooks-to-Go President Ronald Mascariñas.

“We are happy to be chosen to host the first-ever Super Quest.”

For 2019, Chooks-to-Go, a private 3×3 basketball promoter, launched the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 – the Philippines’ first-ever 3×3 basketball league. 12 teams served as the pioneer squads and are currently competing in the six-legged President’s Cup.

With this announcement, the stakes just got higher for the tournament. Besides the PHP 1,000,000 prize for the champions, the top two teams will automatically qualify for the Chooks-to-Go 3×3 Asia-Pacific Super Quest.

The top placers in the Super Quest will gain a berth in FIBA 3X3 World Tour.

“With Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3, we want to show to the Filipino people that there is another avenue for our basketball players to compete in. With the Super Quest, we want to show the world that we can compete with the world’s best in 3×3 basketball,” added league commissioner Eric Altamirano.
