The MBO Tall Blacks road to the 2019 World Cup continues with the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers!

The team have gone unbeaten in their last seven games and are topping Pool E with two Windows remaining. This is your last chance to see the Tall Blacks play a FIBA Qualifier on home soil, before the World Cup in China next year.

The test against Syria will be played on a Sunday afternoon in Wellington and will be the perfect start to New Zealand's first Sunday of summer. With great food, live entertainment and quality international basketball, this is a hot ticket. Bring the kids for a great family occasion, or get a crew together for a Sunday session - what better way to tip off the summer season?

Get behind the Tall Blacks in their last FIBA World Cup qualifier at home.

3x3 competition (12pm-2.30pm)

Make the most of match day but getting down to Queen's Wharf to see local secondary school basketballers compete in a 3x3 basketball competition.

The fast-paced 3X3 game is played on half a basketball court using just one hoop and lasting only 10 minutes. The tournament will run from midday to 2.30pm, with the finalists battling it out on the main court inside TSB Arena during the Tall Blacks v Syria half time break.
