We all know that EL is only interested in money so I m not supprised with GB potentionaly getting a place in El .

If Great Britain gets a place then the Euroleague needs to lose our support. This is getting too ridiculous.

Can you imagine the scores of the games?

Panathinaikos 108 - Newcastle 36..................

I wonder how Partizan is going to meet the budget requirements to have a license? They have to rent the big arena and then they have to maintain a much higher budget. At least that is based on how Euroleague was saying the new contract rules work.

Is Partizan getting a new sponsor now if they get the contract?

As for Spartak, their new arena is supposed to be 7,000 capacity. So I don't see how they can get the contract, when the rule is 10,000 to get a contract. Spartak's old arena is also about 7,000 capacity I think. So it makes no sense to take the contract away from Siena, because they lack the arena, and give it to Spartak, who also lacks it.

Unless Spartak is going to use the hockey arena.....but then why the hell would they have built a new arena then? That seems like a waste of money. Unless maybe they use the new arena just for VTB games and play in the hockey arena for Euroleague. I don't know, that seems weird to me.

Surely, someone else has a better pitch to Euroleague to get the contract. If the arenas are such a huge issue with Euroleague, then you would think someone like ALBA would get the contract.
