The EuroLeague management has called off Turkish Airlines EuroLeague 2019 - 2020 season today, as the Covid - 19 outbreak continues. As per the decision, the remaining matches will not be played, and the teams will be prepared for the 2020-2021 season.
Our biggest wish was to complete the 2019-2020 EuroLeague season by playing as scheduled, yet this was not possible. As we announced after the decision taken for ING Basketball Super League, human health trumps everything else for us. Our biggest wish is that the Covid - 19 outbreak ends as quickly as possible worldwide.
Once again, we would like to immensely thank our esteemed managers, coaches, players, employees, partners and supporters, who have enabled us to complete the 28-game period of the regular season as the leader.
As was the case in the ING Basketball Super League, we are sure that our efforts and investments during this season are not wasted in the EuroLeague. We are deeply proud to represent our country successfully once again in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, the most important basketball organization in Europe.
We once again extend our condolences to the families of people who lost their lives due to Covid - 19 outbreak worldwide, and we express our gratitude to the healthcare workers who struggle with the Covid - 19 outbreak at their own expense.
As Anadolu Efes Sports Club, we will be on the court with the goal of achieving championships in all organizations we compete in the 2020-2021 season and we will say #WhereIStand together with our fans.
