Takaaki Nakamura of Xebio Group, co-organizer of the event, noted many players from around the world and FIBA staff spread information on Sendai through Facebook, Twitter, etc, and it’s meaningful to tell the world that Sendai was livened up this way

 

There’s a movement to make 3×3 basketball become an official event for the Tōkyō Olympics in 2020.

Mr. Nakamura wants the 3×3 basketball to become the most active sport in the world,

and hopes Japan is able to lead the promotion of the sport.
