They're as basketball crazy!

ABU DHABI --- H.H. Sheikh Nahyan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Sports Council, has said the success of the 2015 FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final, FIBA's flagship competition between 15-16 October, proves that Abu Dhabi remains an excellent venue for world sports events.

H.H. Sheikh Nahyan, who is also Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, said: "We are proud of the achievements being made by Abu Dhabi and the diversity of international sports events organised in it. This reflects the large scale development taking place in the UAE under its wise leadership who supports growth and prosperity in all spheres."
