Azerbaijan's women's basketball team has qualified for the 3x3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Paris 2024 to be held in Hong Kong from 17 April 2024.

Azerbaijan's first-ever women's basketball team will take part in the upcoming Hong Kong Qualifier on 17-18 April 2024 in a bid to secure a coveted place at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. 

The nation of 10 million, which gained independence in 1991, will compete against local Hong Kong teams as well as teams from the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Mongolia, Egypt and Chile in this increasingly popular form of basketball that has captured the attention of spectators and players alike. 

This tournament is UOQT 1, with UOQT 2 to be held in Japan and UOQT 3 in Debrecen, Hungary, from 23-26 May. The winners in Japan and the top three teams per gender in Hungary will secure their places at Paris 2024. 

It's worth noting that the 3x3 basketball event, a fast-growing format, will take place in Paris from 30 July to 5 August 2024 at the iconic Place de la Concorde in the heart of the French capital.
