EuroLeague Basketball History

Let’s take a few moments to focus on the history of EuroLeague Basketball as this enables us to develop a better understanding and to build knowledge of the historical events, giving us a much greater appreciation for current EuroLeague Basketball events today.

The EuroLeague is the basketball version of soccer's Champions League, with the top European clubs qualifying each year. The teams play EuroLeague games during the week and in their own countries' leagues on the weekends.

The EuroLeague is also known as the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague for sponsorship reasons. It is a top-tier European professional basketball club competition, organized by EuroLeague Basketball since 2000. The EuroLeague title has been won by 21 different clubs, 13 of which have won the title more than once. The most successful club in the competition is Real Madrid, with ten titles. The current champions are CSKA Moscow, who defeated Anadolu Efes in the 2019 final, winning the club's eighth title.

2019–20 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season being cancelled.

The 2019–20 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague was the 20th season of the modern era of the EuroLeague and the 10th under the title sponsorship of the Turkish Airlines. The EuroLeague was building towards its climax when the coronavirus pandemic struck, and now the 2019-20 season has been cancelled. The season started on 3 October 2019, the campaign was still in its regular-season stage when the coronavirus pandemic forced the league to be suspended and the last games was on the 6th March 2020.

Five teams had already secured play-off places after 28 of the scheduled 34 rounds of games, with three more berths up for grabs.

Anadolu Efes Istanbul sat top of the standings, ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona, with CSKA Moscow fourth and Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv in fifth place.       

Having explored every possible option, the Executive Board has made the decision to cancel the 2019-20 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup, as well as the Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament and EuroLeague Academy.

The EuroLeague Commercial Assets (ECA) executive board declared the 2019–20 season over, announcing the 2020-21 EuroLeague will start on October 1. The 2020–21 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague will be the 21st season of the modern era of the EuroLeague and the 11th under the title sponsorship of the Turkish Airlines. As the season is the first to be played after the previous season was abandoned due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the EuroLeague board ruled that a total of 18 teams from 10 countries will participate in the 2020–21 EuroLeague.

Preparations for next season are already in full swing. On Wednesday, the full regular season calendar for the 2020/2021 EuroLeague campaign was announced by the organization, with the action set to begin on October 1.

One of the most anticipated games of the entire season will take place in the second round. On October 9, Panathinaikos will compete against arch-rivals Olympiacos at the OAKA Indoor Hall, a battle which is always full of desire and passion. The return game between the two sides will be played on February 5 in Piraeus.

The regular season will end in early April with Panathinaikos playing against Zalgiris in Lithuania and Olympiacos competing with Khimki at home.

Here is a list of the 2020/2021 EuroLeague regular season fixtures for Panathinaikos and Olympiacos respectively:

Initially, Panathinaikos had vowed to leave the EuroLeague in favor of the FIBA-run Basketball Champions League, but the Athenians weren’t willing to pay the clause of 10 million euros which would enable them to break their contract. Panathinaikos’ deal with the EuroLeague is due to run until 2026.
