Euroleague Basketball will welcome elite basketball back to the continent by organising a pair of preseason tournaments featuring some of the best EuroLeague clubs as the coaches and players fine-tune their games ahead of the regular season tip-off on October 1.
The first event will be at Žalgirio Arena in Kaunas, Lithuania, on September 12-13, 2020, featuring AX Armani Exchange Milan, Panathinaikos OPAP Athens, Anadolu Efes Istanbul and host Žalgiris Kaunas.
Then the attention moves to La Fonteta in Valencia, Spain, where on September 15-16, 2020, FC Bayern Munich, Olympiacos Piraeus, LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne and Valencia Basket will contend for a preseason title.
Both tournaments will feature two days of two games with the semifinals on the first day followed by the third-place and championship games the next day.
Ticket sales are set to begin once precise security requirements and recommendations for COVID-19 are in place in Lithuania.
