Euroleague announces cancellation of 2019/20 season

25 May 2020

The Euroleague has announced the cancellation of the 2019/20 competition after a virtual meeting of its Executive Board of Shareholders on Monday. According to its statement, among the considerations for taking this decision are “the health and safety of athletes, fans, staff and members; the different evolution of COVID-19 in the territories; a reduced training schedule compared to the approved minimum of three weeks; and the decision not to modify the self-imposed deadlines for the end of the competitions”.

Furthermore, the Euroleague assures that “in accordance with the continuous values of integrity and sporting fairness, the Executive Board has decided not to recognize any team as the 2019/20 champion”. On the other hand, they announced that the next edition will have the participation of the same 18 teams and that it will start on October 1st. However, they specify that they “will continue to monitor the evolution of COVID-19, staying in close contact with governments and public health authorities to ensure optimal conditions for all”.
