The president and CEO of the EuroLeague referred to the return to action, while clarifying the landscape regarding a possible postponement of matches.

At the same time, he stressed that there is a plan b for the season, while he reiterated that Cologne will organize the Final 4.

Initially, the president and CEO of the EuroLeague noted: “I am very happy to be back on the floor. The first match went normally. It was a challenge to organize the season. “It was very difficult for both the clubs and the league to have a lot of challenges, to make everything look as normal as possible.”

Asked if things are changing with the positive cases of coronavirus in CSKA Moscow and Barcelona, ​​he said: “Nothing changes. We have set the rules and they have flexibility and aim to make the matches run smoothly. When a team has eight players available to play, then the game will be played normally. Only if there are less than eight players will the match be postponed and rescheduled. This was decided due to the complexity of the program. We can not constantly postpone matches and hold them on new dates. Postponements are easier in national championships, because there are no big trips “.

In addition, he answered about whether there is a plan b for this season: “Plan b is ready if Europe returns to the pandemic, as it did in April and May. The plan is ready, but I hope it will not be needed. “

As for the Final 4 of the event, he clarified: “Cologne will be the city to host the Final 4. All that can happen is to move the tournament by a week.”
