Il Maccabi Tel Aviv “trasloca” momentaneamente a Belgrado.

Il board di EuroLeague, riunitosi nella giornata di ieri a Istanbul, ha deciso per lo spostamento provvisorio del Maccabi Tel Aviv a Belgrado, dove la sua casa sarà il famoso Pionir o chiamato anche Hala Aleksandar Nikolić.

Lo spostamento è dovuto all’ovvio conflitto presente in Israele e il governo serbo ha garantito la protezione e la sicurezza alla squadra e tutto lo staff del Maccabi.

Il comunicato di EuroLeague Basketball:

Maccabi PlaytikaTel Aviv to play its EuroLeague home games in Belgrade, Serbia 
 
In a meeting held in Istanbul, Turkiye, on October 24, the Euroleague Commercial Assets’ shareholders have agreed that Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv will play all of its upcoming home games at Aleksandar Nikolic Hall in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade. 

Maccabi will play its first home game there against FC Bayern Munich on November 9. Maccabi’s Round 6 meeting with Real Madrid, which was originally scheduled for November 2, is suspended and will be played at a later date.  

This decision has been taken considering the impossible nature of hosting games in Tel Aviv due to security concerns derived from the ongoing armed conflict in the area. 

Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv has received the support of the Belgrade Municipality and the Serbian Government and will engage in conversations to plan the necessary security measures that protect the integrity of all individuals, which remains the ultimate priority for Euroleague Basketball and its clubs. Said security measures will be presented to the Euroleague Basketball office and the rest of the teams for review. 

Euroleague Basketball (EB) has requested Hapoel Shlomo Tel Aviv to present an alternative arena located out of Israel to host its upcoming BKT EuroCup home games. 

EB will continue to monitor the evolution of the situation, staying in contact with all related parties, and will announce any modifications regarding the above decisions if necessary.
