The 5th Afro Varsity 3×3 Basketball Challenge postponed

The Federation of Africa University Sports(FASU) and University Sport South Africa (USSA), the organizers of the 5th Afro Varsity 3×3 basketball challenge, which was scheduled to take place in Johannesburg, South Africa from April 27th to 30th, 2023, have announced the unfortunate postponement of the tournament. The decision was made due to the failure to raise quorum of eight countries for a FISU qualifying tournament, with only Uganda, Egypt, Zambia, South Africa, and Kenya confirming their participation.

The tournament has grown in popularity over the years, with many young players using it as an opportunity to secure a place at FISU University World Cup 3X3 Basketball. The postponement of the 5th Afro Varsity 3×3 basketball challenge is undoubtedly a disappointment to players, fans, and organizers alike. However, the decision was made in the best interest of the tournament, as it is important to maintain the integrity of the competition and ensure that all participating countries have a fair chance to qualify for FISU University World Cup 3X3 Basketball.

Despite the setback, many are hopeful that the tournament will be rescheduled soon and that more countries will be able to participate in the FISU qualifying tournament. The Afro Varsity 3×3 basketball challenge has played an important role in promoting basketball in Africa and providing opportunities for young players to pursue their dreams of playing at the highest level, and it is essential that this tradition continues.
