The largest free basketball circuit in Spain
The FEB and CaixaBank launched the Plaza 3×3 program in 2012. Since then, this free 3×3 basketball championship has become the largest traveling basketball circuit in all of Spain. The nine stops of 2019, the last that could be held, raised the figures for this street basketball promotion program to more than 42,000 participants and 200,000 visitors. A very positive balance of this emblematic program, which in its eight editions has already visited 39 cities throughout Spain.

CaixaBank is a sponsoring partner of the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) and official sponsor of the Spanish National Team in all its categories, male and female.
