The sun will set on the 2012 tour of the FIBA Europe 3on3 on 22 September, but it will get there with a bang - and the biggest event in its history

The 2012 Tour of the FIBA Europe 3on3 is fast approaching its final stop and it plans to get there with a bang.

To that effect, FIBA Europe 3on3 has teamed up with the Russian Basketball Federation and Streetball Russia to organise its biggest ever event.

Choosing the venue was the easiest part of the plan as it doesn't get any bigger than Moscow, the city with the largest metropolitan area in Europe.

The logistics behind such an enormous event though are a complicated proposition, as the Russian capital will be the epicentre of an unprecedented 3on3 blast on Saturday.

That is because an estimated 500 teams will battle it out on up to 38 different courts at the Luzhniki stadium during the course of the day.

The eight main courts will be set up at the Luzhniki itself, while the remaining courts will be assembled in the surrounding areas.

The historic stadium on the banks of the river Moskva is no stranger to 3on3 events of this magnitude, as it also plays host to the Moscow Open, the most prestigious streetball event in the world, every summer.

The Saturday schedule includes the final of the Russian 3on3Cup, an open tournament for amateur players as well as a dunk contest and other fun activities for the public that have become a permanent feature in all FIBA Europe 3o3n events.

The participating teams will compete in seven age categories:

U15 Girls
U17 Girls
18+ Women
U13 Boys
U15 Boys
U17 Boys
18+ Men

The 24 teams that will participate in the final of the Russian 3on3 Cup come from the capital and all over this vast country, including Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Ivanovo, Nizhny Novgorod, Krasnodar and Kaliningrad.

The Moscow mega-event is the penultimate stop of the 2012 FIBA Europe 3on3 Tour, which will conclude on 22 September in Budapest.
