The die is cast! The Final 8 of the BCL will be held normally in Athens, on the scheduled dates (30 / 09-04 / 10), thus completing the … turbulent season 2019-20.
The event will take place normally in Athens and indoors at OAKA. And despite the great desire of the event, but also of AEK, for the presence of fans on the stands, the prevailing scenario is to hold the event without them indoors at the Olympic Facilities.
The Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who has expressed his love for basketball and saw the event from the beginning as a great opportunity to promote the country in Europe, in a difficult time.
Kyriakos Mitsotakis with his intervention gave the necessary directions to cover all the holes that had been opened, due to the absence of fans in the stands and this was the reason why an extraordinary Regional Council was formed today.
The government for its part gave the “green light” and untied the hands of the BCL, in terms of organization. Nothing can stop the event, which will be held indoors at OAKA, as had been decided since September 2, when a press conference was held at a central hotel in Athens to undertake the big event.
The only thing left to clarify at this stage is the issue of the world. At this stage the most likely scenario speaks of Final 8 without fans, but everything will be clear soon.
