GENEVA, March 16 (Xinhua) -- The FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup 2023 will be hosted in Jerusalem, Israel from September 5 to 7, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) announced on Thursday.

Israel has staged the Europe Cup qualifiers for the last two years, and this will be the first time that the country is to host the annual continental tournament which was inaugurated in 2014.

Serbia, who have won four titles in a row, will be the favorites for the men's championship, while France have lifted the women's trophy three times over the last four editions.

Players for the tournament will be selected by their national associations, instead of organizing the teams themselves.
