Final in Abu Dhabi is finally here

Hong Kong Masters was held two weeks ago and it justified all expectations of a 3×3 basketball crowd. World Tour 2022 is ready to culminate with Final Masters in Abu Dhabi where the best 12 teams in the season will participate.

The fever of fans of best-ranked teams throughout the 2022 season is growing as we are counting down the days until the start of the tournament. Let’s go through what we will see in the upcoming weekend.

Twelve teams will participate in the main draw of the Final in Abu Dhabi. The Masters contains four groups with three teams.

Pool fixtures are set to be played on December 10th. Two teams with the best ranking in each group will proceed to the elimination stage.

Ub, Ulaanbaatar, and Princeton will have a battle for the best 8 in group A

LimanVienna, and Omaha are members of pool B

AntwerpSakiai, and Lausanne will participate in group C

RigaAmsterdam, and Utrecht will compete for quarterfinals in pool D.

Quarterfinals, semifinals, and final game are going to be played on December 11, 2022.

Ub had a phenomenal start to the World Tour 2022. The Serbian team was on fire until the loss in fifth Masters of the year against Belgium team Antwerp. Stefan Stojacic’s team have the potential and quality to win the Final, but it will be very challenging. The group stage will be a real test of their strength against inspired Utrecht and compatriots the Danube.

Liman is seed No.2 and they are going into the tournament with high aspirations. The Serbian team failed to qualify for the elimination stage in the Hong Kong Masters and that was a big surprise. Aleksandar Ratkov is undoubtedly leading the Serbian team Liman. They will have challenges against ..

Antwerp promised a lot by winning the Debrecen Masters, but failed to repeat that result. Thibaut Vervoort, their main star, is eager to show the world master class. His assists and shots would be a valuable asset in the hunt for the trophy.

Riga, the Latvian team, is currently the best team in the world. They won a majority of Masters in the recent period and the return of Karlis Lasmanis from Big3 initiated their good form. The Latvian team is hoping that they can confirm the status in the group stage and later in the elimination stage.
